For Predentals

Now that you’ve established your ultimate career goal — becoming a dentist — it’s time to start using ASDA resources to help you achieve it.

Only 50% of applicants are accepted into dental school each year. Becoming an ASDA member will provide you with the best opportunity to stand apart from your competition and improve your chances of getting into dental school.

Once you are a member, you’ll receive The Guide to Getting Into Dental School. This handbook contains tuition information, undergraduate requirements, application requirements and statistics for all 66 U.S. dental schools. It also provides helpful information on: the predental timeline, the DAT, interviewing, choosing a school and more.

In addition, you will also begin receiving ASDA’s monthly e-newsletter, The Polished Predental.
