KDA Hosts Reception for UMKC Dental School Students

On Thursday, October 6, 2016, the KDA hosted a fall break reception for 1st-4th year students attending UMKC School of Dentistry.

The event was held on the 2nd floor terrace at Teocali Mexican Restaurant, 2512 Holmes St, near the dental school in Kansas City, MO.

Thanks to a grant from the American Dental Association, the KDA was able to provide students with drink tickets and light hors d'oeuvres, and KDA staff members were able to mingle with dental students and discuss with them the benefits of organized dentistry.

The KDA staff met with 52 students total - 15 first year students, 6 fourth year students, and 31 second and third year students.

Dr. Jill Jenkins, Chair of the KDA's Membership Committee, was also in attendance. Dr. Jenkins encouraged students to start networking, especially during their second and third years of dental school, to get a feel for associateships and opportunities before they were ​enter their final year. 

Thank you to all who attended! View photos from the event on the KDA Facebook page
