In 1963, a small group of dentists were brought together by similar values and ideals, pride in their Hellenic heritage, and a desire for excellence in their chosen profession. This was the motivation to form our organization. Ever since that first meeting at a Chinese restaurant on South Wabash Street in downtown Chicago, our organization has evolved into a great society with a distinguished group of hard-working members.
For over half a century, HADS has been active in promoting dentistry among our fellow Hellenes, mentoring young dentists, contributing to numerous philanthropic organizations, promoting excellence in the form of continuing education and awarding an annual scholarship to a dental student of Hellenic descent.
HADS is the professional society of Hellenic American dentists who are dedicated in serving the profession of dentistry. HADS supports it's members by providing educational seminars. HADS also provides philanthropy by bestowing scholarships to dental students as well as gifting dental equipment or monetary assistance to dental institutions in the U.S. and Greece.
