Coming Events
National Leadership Conference


Oct. 30 – Nov. 1, 2015
Hilton Chicago
Chicago, Ill.   

NLC 2014 opening keynote

ASDA's 2014 National Leadership Conference welcomed more than 500 students including 65 predentals. This year's event will be held Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 2015 at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago, Ill. Registration is now open.

Personal development (outside of dental school) is important.

Students receive in-depth training in general and specific areas of dentistry through dental school – including ethics, treatment options and patient care. But the “life skills” needed to be a successful business owner, team leader and people manager are sometimes left out of the mix. The National Leadership Conference bridges the gap between the classroom and the real world by providing leadership training to dental students across all years, and predentals. All members are invited. You do not need to have experience as a chapter or national leader to attend.

Your Source for Personal and Professional Development
