The American Association of Women Dentists was founded nationally in 1921 and our chapter at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry was founded in 1982. The mission of AAWD is to be the leading resource for advancing, connecting and enriching the lives of women dentists. As one of the largest student groups on campus, we are dedicated to providing our members with many opportunities for mentoring, learning and community service.
