Pre-Dent Day 2016

By | Events | No Comments

by: Shawn Rajendram, D3
Over 70 pre-dental students visited our school for our annual Pre-Dent Day! Participants got to hear from our admissions staff and a student panel. Dean Lloyd and our awesome new ASDA faculty advisor Dr. Fowler also came to speak to the prospective students about their exciting future careers in dentistry. They also had the opportunity to see what life is like as an OSU dental student firsthand when they went down to the preclinic to practice drilling, waxing, and taking impressions and talk to our incredible ASDA dental student volunteers! I am so glad I was able to be there and help out with the event. The pre-dents really took advantage of the chance to talk one on one with current dental students and learn more about what they are getting into and what they can expect over the next several years.

Wellness Week

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We just finished off our annual Wellness Week where ASDA helped make finals week a little bit easier for its members. We kicked it off with a yoga class Monday night where over 30 members joined us at the RPAC to relax and clear our minds before finals hit. I really enjoyed the opportunity to take a break from studying and de-stress. Then on Tuesday morning we had Buckeye Donuts coffee and donuts for our members. These events really helped me get through finals and made the week go by a lot faster!

ASDA has been a great experience for me and I am glad I joined as a D1 because I've had the opportunity to learn a lot about the issues that face dentistry and how I can get involved to make an impact. I have also been able to meet a lot of upperclassmen and network.

Urvi Shukla, D4

Why am I glad I joined ASDA? Because of all of the great connections I have made with other dental students across the country as well as with dentists across Ohio. Most of all, I'm glad I joined because I know I'm doing my part to help maintain the integrity of my future profession.

Clare McGorry, Class of '16

ASDA is about people, and the I relationships I've developed with dental students and dentists throughout the state and even the country are some that I know I will always cherish. Being part of ASDA has without a doubt been the most rewarding aspect of my dental school experience, and I encourage other students to take advantage of those experiences!
