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 your 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 36 countries and has over 5,000 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.

Country Program Overview

The Scandinavian program began in 1991 for dental students in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland. Typically this program takes place in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the Danish Dental Association. In recent years, the program was expanded to include the Netherlands and the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
