University of Colorado

March 2016 Volume LI Number 2


The University of Colorado AAPD Student Chapter is a newly founded organization with the purpose of encouraging students to pursue a career in pediatric dentistry and to promote appreciation of dentistry for children among dental students. We have grown as an organization from just a few members in 2013, to over 50 active members in 2015. The president, vice president, secretary and treasurer plan activities together throughout the year. They are responsible for organizing lunch and learns with pediatric dentistry faculty and residents; conducting community service activities and motivating students to participate on them; collecting funds and presenting reports; holding quarterly meetings and collaborating with other student organizations.
