ASDA unites students by giving them a voice in fighting to address issues facing dentistry through organized events such as Day at the Statehouse and National Dental Student Lobby Day.


Community outreach is at the core of ASDA’s mission. We organize events including Give Kids a Smile and Smiles for Seniors in order to help others.


ASDA helps develop the future leaders of the dental profession by empowering students to get involved in organized dentistry early on and by hosting national leadership conferences and events.

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!
