Got a minute to learn about ASDA?

The American Student Dental Association is a national student-run organization that protects and advances the rights, interests and welfare of dental students.

ASDA introduces students to lifelong involvement in organized dentistry and provides leadership development opportunities, services, information, education and advocacy.

We’ve grown to more than 24,000 members, have a chapter at each of the nation’s 66 dental schools and represent 92 percent of dental students in the United States and Puerto Rico.

ASDA publishes a print magazine and a blog that are student-run, as well as multiple e-newsletters. The association maintains active Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, as well as Snapchat. Members can engage with each other at the national level by submitting articles, joining committees or by attending in-person events focused on leadership training, advocacy and association business.
