What does ASDA membership mean to you? Through my ASDA membership, I have access to a wealth of resources to assist me along my dental school journey. ASDA has allowed me to become closer to members across the U.S., author articles for Contour, engage in advocacy, and develop my leadership prowess. As a dental student, my ASDA membership has proven to be invaluable.

How did you select your dental program? My choice in dental school came after much research. What I wanted most was a quality education and to attend an institution of historical significance. Robert Tanner Freeman was the first African American to obtain a dental degree. Being the first in my family to seek a dental degree, the thought of studying at Howard University College of Dentistry, a historically black university (HBCU) is a distinct honor and a privilege.
