Dentistry is a demanding, multifaceted profession. Dental schools in the U.S. are looking at grades and scores, but they are also reviewing skills and experiences that can make a contribution to the profession. What can you do in your undergraduate years to make the strongest presentation to the admissions committee?  Submit your questions ahead of time through Facebook or Instagram, and members of the Predental Advisory Committee and others will get you answers.

This webinar is only available to ASDA members
