Career Planning 

The work world may seem like a long way off, but it is never too early to plan for your goals. What can you do today to make sure you're ready for tomorrow? The sessions in this track will address post-grad options, how to prepare yourself for interviews and other areas to get you ready to enter the dental profession.

Leadership Fundamentals

Leadership isn't defined by the job title. It's about developing the perspective, skills and personal style to get results that matter. Sessions will focus on leading teams, public speaking, leveraging individual strengths, conflict resolution and other areas to develop your leadership skills. 

Personal Development and Wellness

Personal development and wellness are critical to living a balanced and successful life. Sessions in this track will cover activities that develop talents and potential, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. Managing emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual and environmental health will be addressed. 

ASDA Chapter Management

Understanding ASDA and how to manage your chapter will result in increased member satisfaction. Sessions will focus on chapter leadership resources, member involvement and recruitment ideas, and how to run an “Ideal” Chapter. 
Part of being a dentist is wondering how to advocate for your patient and your community in an ever-changing political environment. Sessions in this track will address ASDA’s legislative priorities, provide tips on how to build strategic relationships and give you the tools needed to become a life-long advocate once you leave the conference.
