Become a Member

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 a 69% 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 $80/year.
