HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL DENTAL ASSOCIATION

The National Dental Association was founded or came into being in 1918 because Black or Negro Dentists were refused membership in organized Dentistry.

The object of this association shall be to promote the art and science of Dentistry; to raise the standards of the dental profession and dental education; to stimulate favorable relations and good fellowship among Dentists and also between Dentists and other health professions; to nurture the growth and diffusion of dental health knowledge; to sponsor and work for betterment of the public health; to work persistently for the elimination of segregation and discrimination from American Dental Institution, Clinic, and organization. The member of the National Dental Association down through the years have served diligently and continuously in the poverty and ghetto areas of our nation.

In recent years we have worked very diligently with the ADA in helping to eradicate and eliminate discrimination and segregation in organized dentistry, even though much has been done we still have much to be accomplished. We have worked cooperatively to get greater participation in area and facet of organized dentistry in recent years also.

We are still seeking greater participation in Public Health funded programs for improved health and better health care delivery, because we feel that it will be through the agencies that the professional will be able to make a good approach to help solve the health care delivery problem of this nation.

Recruitment—National recruitment program, Dr. Frank Chowning—Scholarship Fund Loans for Black Students.

We are also concerned with organized dentistry playing a greater role in health care. Many systematic diseases are first detected by men in the dental profession. There are more than 1 billion cavities in the oral cavities of the American pleople, and it would take approximately 10 years to catch up the back log.

 We in the National Dental feel that we have the expertise by virtue to the fact that being closer to the problems we are more aware of the need and would like to help improve health care delivery to the consumer.
