Shop with a Dentist

Shop with a Dentist is a student organized event at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry that aims to bring joy to children, hope to families, and the holidays to Louisville. The event is organized by the Student National Dental Association (SNDA) who's goals are strongly oriented in service to the community.

We believe that all children deserve to have a joyous holiday experience. Above that, we believe that these children need to build healthy relationships, learn about educational advancement, and follow positive role models in their own community.

With money fundraised from the local community, student mentors volunteer their time to take a underserved child shopping for holiday gifts at Target on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017. The mentors not only provide the child with clothes, shoes, and supplies they are in need of, but also form relationships and serve as positive role models for the child. We strongly wish that through this short-term mentorship we foster long-term positive relationships between children and dentists in effort to help young children overcome their fear of the dentist.

Our goal is to bring joy to as many children and families as possible. However, with this being our inaugural year, we are limited in resources and importantly, donations.

A kind donation to help us reach our goal of $1500 for our inaugural year of Shop with a Dentist. Anything is appreciated!
