ASDA Community Large

The ASDA Community gathers dental students to discuss topics with members across the country, from anywhere at any time, to help you successfully navigate dental school.

Ever wonder how other students cram for their finals? Curious about the transition from sim lab to clinic? The community is an online forum for you to connect, find solutions and learn alongside fellow members from across the country.

  • Explore. You'll have the ability to communicate and learn from others about topics that are important to you. Post a question and find an answer!
  • Engage. Respond to a post and help your peers out! Or, add documents to the dedicated Resource Library to share helpful information.
  • Connect. Find other ASDA members to seek advice and share common challenges.

Only available to ASDA predoctoral members, login or download the app to start connecting today!

Email with questions.
