“Building Bridges” is the theme of the 2019 meeting. Attending Annual Session is the perfect opportunity to bridge the gap between what occurs at the national level of ASDA and how that trickles down to affect your experiences at the local level. Bridges also represent pathways to future success and connections between communities. Inspired by Pittsburgh, the “city of bridges,” Annual Session provides you with opportunities to grow as a professional and build your network. 

Annual Session brings together representatives from every dental school in the country. They come to adopt policy and elect leaders from the coming year. Newly elected leaders will use these policies to advocate on your behalf. 

Additionally, the meeting provides cutting-edge content and the opportunity to connect and celebrate with your dental student colleagues.
