Personal development outside of dental school is essential
Dental students receive in-depth training in general and specific areas of dentistry through school – including ethics, treatment options and patient care. But the skills needed to be a successful business owner, team leader and people manager are sometimes left out of the mix. The National Leadership Conference will help ensure that you’re a well-rounded leader in the profession of dentistry.
ASDA's 2015 National Leadership Conference welcomed almost 600 dental students, as well 65 predentals. All predental and predoctoral ASDA members are invited to join us at this year's event, to be held Nov. 4-6, 2016 at the Hilton Chicago in Chicago, Ill. You do not need to have experience as a chapter or national leader to attend.
