Annual Session

Annual Session is the heart and soul of what ASDA is and does. This is the official business meeting of the organization where delegates convene to vote on new and existing policy and elect new national leaders. As with every ASDA conference, a notable lineup of breakout sessions are offered throughout the weekend, ranging from How to Not Fail Miserably in Practice to Transitioning from Classroom to Clinic. The week's events also include a dental expo where attendees meet vendors, win free prizes, and connect with up-and-coming vendors; the Gold Crown Awards Ceremony where ASDA recognizes the achievements of its chapters and members; and, of course, a themed gala celebration.

Why should I attend Annual Session?

  • Experience ASDA in its truest form
  • Vote for the next cycle's national leadership team and select your District Trustees
  • Network with various vendors, dental students, and dental professionals from across the country
  • Learn about topics not formally covered in school, such as post-graduate opportunities, malpractice insurance, or how to manage student debt

I actually had a ton of fun at Annual Session. It was a great mix of work and play. I got to meet a lot of dental students from all over that Iā€™m still in contact with. Also, it was really beneficial witnessing the way ASDA works to improve dental school at a national level.
