Predental Month

ASDA_Predental-Month-2017_LogoOctober is Predental Month. Join ASDA chapters and clubs nationwide in celebrating predentals and their place in the association. During the month, ASDA will be promoting resources and virtual events for predentals. Predentals that join ASDA during Predental Month will be eligible for prizes and special incentives.

Help promote Predental Month

You’re participating in Predental Month 2017 this year – share this handout with your fellow predentals. Let other members know you're attending and encourage them to join you in October.

Incentives for ASDA predental chapters and clubs

The ASDA predental chapter or predental club that recruits the most predentals to national ASDA by October 31 will earn a $250 incentive. Membership renewals count as well. Predental members must reference your chapter/club on the application when applying.


2016 Fall PDW IG winner

ASDA’s Predental Month Instagram contest will challenge your creativity and afford chapters, predental clubs and individual ASDA members the opportunity to earn prizes for participation. Each Monday, ASDA will announce a scavenger hunt-like theme. Participants will post a photograph of the theme on Instagram. Each post must tag @dentalstudents and include the hashtag #ASDAPredental. Each week, the Predental Advisory Committee will pick a winner who will win a $50 gift card.
