"The Dental School Experience" Webinar
ASDA hosted a live webinar on Feb. 19, 2014 for predental members to learn more about dental school from many perspectives. Panelists shared their experiences and advice on choosing a school, interviewing, selecting the right classes, extracurricular activities and much more.
