Getting into dental school is a competitive process. If you aren't already an ASDA predental member, join today. Your involvement will give you exposure to important dental issues through ASDA communications and give you something to talk about when you meet with dental school admissions. ASDA membership also introduces you to dental students from across the country who are happy to answer questions you may have about their school or life as a dental student.

Ongoing Activities During Undergraduate Studies

  • Shadow practicing dentists and record hours. Be sure to visit a variety of practice models.
  • Participate in campus activities (quality is more important than quantity).
  • Maintain your ASDA membership — try to attend chapter events to learn about dentistry and meet dental students nationwide.
  • So much more...

ASDA has created a full list of activities you should complete during your undergraduate years. Members also can view a year-by-year recommended course of study to prepare you for dental school.
