About NDSC

Dr. Sanj Mohanta NDSC

Dr. Sanjukta Mohanta, Founder of The New Dentist Study Club

The club was founded by Dr. Sanjukta Mohanta out of a desire to cultivate the minds of young dentists. The NDSC is a welcoming space where members are encouraged to share their vulnerabilities, learn from, and support their peers. Wellness is an integral part of the NDSC. Attendees sit side-by-side and are welcome to express themselves freely without judgement.

Success at the NDSC is measured by the impact it has on its participants, including the new skills they acquire, the knowledge they share, and the bonds they form with their peers.

Dr. Mohanta is certified in adult education, a skill that she applied as an instructor at a dental hygiene college. She currently works at a community health centre treating children and seniors in public dental programs.
