History of CADA

1991       A group of Chinese dental faculty and    
               students from New York University and
               Columbia University established a study
               club with the purpose of education and
               networking; and to share with each other
               experiences at their respective schools.
               The founders, Dr. Victor Lin, Dr. Andrew
               Kuo, Dr. Samuel Jung and several others
               met at the Grace Church on Broadway
               near Washington Square.

1992       Dr. Peter Wang led the study club. A
               formal meeting was held at the Sheraton
               Hotel In Flushing.

1993       The population of the group began to
               grow with the influx of Chinese dentists in
               the Tri-state area. With the increasing
               number to members, Dr. Samuel Jung,
               Dr. Steven Lee, Dr. Daniel Yen, Dr.
               Henry Chiu, and Dr. Thiem Le discussed 
               the matter and officially established the
               Chinese American Dental Association
               (CADA) as a registered non-profit 

1995       CADA joined the FDI convention in
               Hong Kong. From there, we went into
              China for the first China visit.

2000      When the new millennium began, the term
              of presidency was changed to two years
              instead of one.

2001      CADA ventured on an educational trip to
              Taiwan with the Deans of NYU and
              Columbia University to join a FIDC
              meeting. With sixty four members present,
              we were the largest group there. At this
              trip, NYU renewed a contract with 
              National Yangming University School of 
              Dentistry as sister schools. After Taiwan,
              we went to China to visit Beijing
              University, Shanghai second Medical
              Hospital, School of Dentistry where NYU
             signed a contract with them designating

2003     CADA once again ventured out to Xian,
             China. We visited the Xian Military Dental
             School. Since then, it has been a tradition
             for CADA to organize the educational tour
             every other year.
