A MESSAGE FROM THE SCADA PRESIDENT

On behalf of the SCADA Officers and Board of Governors, I welcome you to the International Association of Student Clinicians / American Dental Association. As a former Student Clinician, I applaud you for your interest in research and encourage you to take full advantage of our programs. We are most appreciative of the outstanding sponsorship of Dentsply Sirona for over fifty-seven years and the support of the American Dental Association as the host of our SCADA program at each annual session. Please review our exciting website to read the history of SCADA and to become familiar with our story. It is my sincere hope that this organization will open new horizons and fellowship for you within the dental community. 

Kelton T. Stewart, D.D.S., M.S. SCADA President

History

THE SCADA STORY

Welcome to SCADA! The Student Clinician Research Program of the ADA is comprised of a select and elite group of dentists who participated in the Student Clinician Research Program at their individual schools and their country's national program. This program was first presented in 1959 at the centennial session of the ADA in New York City as a joint venture between then DENTSPLY International and the American Dental Association. Dr. Harold Hillenbrand, then Executive Director of the ADA and Mr. Henry M. Thornton, then President of DENTSPLY International initiated the first program. Since its inception, the program has expanded to cover 39 countries and has over 7,000 student participants.

The ADA hosts a SCADA program at each annual meeting as a popular feature of the scientific session. Students are selected to compete and present their work by their individual schools. Dentsply Sirona is proud to serve as the sponsor of this program by funding all program-related awards and expenses. They also sponsor an orientation seminar for student clinicians on the evening preceding the judging and host a reception and dinner to honor the participants on the evening of the judging.
