What is ASDA?
We are the Oklahoma chapter of the American Student Dental Association. ASDA is a national student-run organization that protects and advances the rights, interests, and welfare of students pursuing careers in dentistry. It introduces students to lifelong involvement in organized dentistry and provides services, information, education, representation and advocacy.
Our mission is to inspire and further develop leadership by increasing involvement with local, state, and national leaders in the dental community. We actively engage our current members, alumni, faculty and staff by organizing educational lunch and learns, pre-dental simulation courses, and networking events.
Why join ASDA?
When you join ASDA, you are given a voice in both your education and profession and a chance to be part of a strong network of future dentists. You will also have the opportunity to develop the leadership skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, dental students attending the University of College of Dentistry pay a one-time due of $100. That's over a 70% reduction in dues!* This automatically enrolls you as an Oklahoma chapter and national ASDA member, as well as a student member of the ADA.
*National ASDA dues are normally $85/year.
