Uniformed Services Student Dental Association (USSDA)

USSDA is a student organization committed to providing a forum for students and residents participating in the Health Professionals Scholarship Program (HPSP), Health Services Collegiate Program (HSCP), and those interested in a career in military dentistry.

USSDA strives to improve the experience of HPSP students by helping prepare future military dentists in topics such navigating chain of command, selection of active duty training locations, applying for military residency programs, and maintaining physical fitness.

USSDA’s outreach activities include promoting HSPS to students and participating in community service projects that support veterans, active duty military, and their families, such as Operation Standdown, Operation Gratitude, and Toys for Tots.
