The Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity

Dr. Monica Boniadi is a dentist with nearly 20 years of clinical experience. Currently practicing in Laguna Hills, California, Dr. Monica Boniadi earned her DDS from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she graduated with honors and was a member of the Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity.

Considered the country’s oldest fraternity for dentists, Delta Sigma Delta was founded in the early 1880s by Lou Mitchell and Chas Howard, two graduates of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. The two students recognized the need for an honor society specific to dentists. They created the group as a way to bring together outstanding dentistry students, as well as to attract top-quality practitioners and teachers.

Delta Sigma Delta currently has undergraduate chapters in dental schools throughout the country, in addition to graduate chapters in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and Asia. The organization sponsors a number of professional programs, educational programs, and social functions for its members.
