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.

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
