My name is Sammi Hofstra and I am the current President of the IASD student group.  I am a third year dental student at Texas A&M College of Dentistry, in Dallas, Texas.  I am very excited to lead this group, with high hopes that others can have the same involvement I have had as a student within IASD.   I have been able to attend conferences with IASD in Freiburg and Hannover, Germany,  as well as work in the dental office of Hannover 96’s professional soccer team.


We are looking forward to future events such as IASD’s Interdisciplinary Symposium on Sport Dentistry in Cologne in May 2022 and even visiting the European Association Ea4SD in Athens Greece as a group this upcoming November.  I have loved my experience and been able to learn much about sports dentistry and the influence that our profession can have in the sports realm.  I have also been able to meet so many wonderful colleagues and expand my international network while learning about other cultures.  That being said, I would love to continue to meet more students.  Please reach out if you have any questions or interest in joining this student group, and I look forward to meeting you!
