|I really enjoyed meeting and spending time with students from across country. I learned a lot from the breakout sessions and plan to share my notes with my chapter. Attending NLC and meeting so many influential people strengthened and renewed my appreciation for organized dentistry and ASDA.

|I just gave a presentation on what I learned at NLC to our local ASDA chapter. The subjects covered [at the event] were so applicable I ended up getting mobbed by first years asking how to learn more and how to get more involved. If your intention was to have the NLC ignite a buzz back in the local chapters, you've succeeded!
- Christian Piers, Colorado ’16
|I really enjoyed Dr. Salierno's and Dr. Dulde's presentations on public speaking and how to lead effective meetings. I enjoy seeing energetic and inspirational speakers and leaders in action. My favorite part was meeting and spending time with dental students from all over! It's just great to hear different perspectives and how different people became involved with ASDA.
- Daryn Lu, Oklahoma ’15
|My time at NLC solidified my career choice in the field the dentistry. Being able to talk through some of my concerns with current dental students who had already been through what I am going through was very reassuring. This conference was a great taste of the welcoming and strongly-connected community that predentals can become a part of in the future.
- Zachary Snider, Northwestern University, predental
