ASDA introduces students to organized dentistry and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills. National leaders are responsible for furthering ASDA’s mission and completing tasks aligned with the council or committee mission.
All ASDA national leadership applications are closed.
ASDA national leaders have gone on to serve on ADA’s New Dentist Committee, state and local societies and as presenters at ASDA, ADA and Academy of General Dentistry national meetings.
Applications for the 2025-26 leadership cycle will open in Fall 2024.
National leaders must participate fully (whether it be virtual or in-person) in council business via email, meet deadlines, and attend all council calls. Please refer to each specific council’s and position’s meeting requirements.

- Overview of ASDA organizational structure, standing rules, policies and procedures
- Training on how to become an effective team member
