The mission of this Council is to encourage alumni to participate actively in the College of Dental Medicine Arizona (CDMA) community by fostering fellowship amongst peers and faculty, enriching the lives and learning experiences of the newest classes of CDMA student dentists, embracing the ideals of life-long learning and service and contributing to the culture of our esteemed college and University as a whole.
