The Alpha Omega International Dental Society is the oldest international dental organization. Our chapter here at UFCD was started to give current Jewish Dental students a community to support each other, share our heritage with those interested in learning more about Jewish culture, and organize events to help better the school, community, and world as a whole.
Members can meet other Jewish dental students, learn more about the Jewish culture, and expand their networking with other professionals either out in practice or in organizations around the world. As part of a large international organization, we’ll be offering many events and ways to help other students and the community, as well as access to opportunities such as continuing education courses and externships (some of which are even international).
