Predental Resources & Events from ASDA

The American Student Dental Association (ASDA) is holding its third annual National Predental Week on Feb. 21-27, 2016. We hope you will encourage predentals at your school to participate.

During this time, ASDA will promote resources and events for predentals, including two free webinars about scholarship and loan repayment and hot topics in dentistry. Predentals that join ASDA during that week will be eligible for prizes. The predental club that recruits the most predental members from Feb. 21-27 will earn a "virtual visit" from ASDA, which includes a personalized webinar with ASDA leaders, lunch provided by ASDA and raffle prizes for their members. Many ASDA chapters will hold their own events as well.

ASDA is the premier resource for students interested in a career in dentistry. There is an ASDA chapter at each of the 65 U.S. dental schools and more than 90 percent of all U.S. dental students are members. ASDA also supports a rapidly growing community of more than 2,300 predental student members.

In addition to resources like the "Getting into Dental School" handbook, DAT preparation resources, predental checklists and application timelines, ASDA offers leadership training and other tools to assist students during their journey to becoming a dentist.
