Thank you to all of our attendees, speakers and sponsors for making ASDA’s 2020 Annual Session a success! This year, we had 65 out of the 66 dental schools represented.

After hearing from our keynote speaker, Chris Norton and choosing from more than 15 breakouts to attend, we hope that all attendees left Annual with a sense of excitement and drive towards growing their personal and professional goals. In addition to the education opportunities, attendees met with potential employers and vendors at the Dental Expo, learned how to get involved in ASDA at the national level and networked with dental students from across the country.
