Hello and welcome to the website of the American Student Dental Association. We’re glad you’re here. ASDA protects and advances the rights, interests and welfare of dental students across the nation. Through events such as our Annual Session, National Dental Student Lobby Day, National Leadership Conference and various local chapter activities, we work to develop strong leaders and advocate for our profession.
I was elected to serve you as president at ASDA’s 2015 House of Delegates in Boston, Mass., along with Vice Presidents Adrien Lewis, Houston ’16, and Niveditha Rajagopalan, Midwestern-Illinois ’16. Along with Executive Director Nancy Honeycutt, this Executive Committee is committed to doing everything we can to support and empower you.
As a unified voice representing 22,000 members and 90 percent of dental students, we look forward to collaborating with leaders across the country to improve the dental licensure process, decrease the burden of student debt and reach those in need of dental care.
Wherever your interests lie, ASDA has a place for you. Take some time to explore what ASDA has to offer. Whether you want to become a better team leader, improve your dental school experience, ensure the future of your profession or help dental students and their patients, ASDA is the place to make an impact. We hope you’ll give us the chance to help you reach your goals.
