The International Association of Dental Students (IADS) is a non governmental organization that represents dental students in some 60 countries worldwide. It was founded in September 1951, during the first IADS General Assembly that took place in Copenhagen, Denmark

The dental students’ educational needs sometimes go beyond the dental curriculum and clinical practice within the Faculty. Students feel the need to taste extracurricular activities such as being engaged into abroad internships, prophylaxis and voluntary activities, media or other. Only through these activities can they become leaders of their dental student communities.

The International Association of Dental Students has constructed it’s foundations and goals in order to serve and fulfil those kind of educational development necessities, and throughout the past decades it has successfully managed to build international projects for the aforementioned purposes.

“You have to find that one thing in life that puts your soul on fire and makes your heart sing. To me it always is and always will be IADS. It is the only place where you feel at home and with family anywhere you are in the world. The biggest adventure you can have is to live the life of your dreams and, well, I guess this is what we do!”
Dr. Magdalena Wilczak - President of Young Dentists Worldwide
“Voluntary projects helped me to help. Thank you IADS :)”
Alica Blažeková - Dental Student, Slovakia
