Electron density

Why do s and d orbitals not have electron density?

What do you mean? I think they do have electron density, which is represented by their respective orbitals.

I think s and p orbitals both do have electron density because electrons are found on s and p orbitals. However, there is no nodal plane (where there is no electron found, which is 0 electron density) in the s orbital.
