Catch the ASDA Fever!
In order to teach members more about organized dentistry and give them a preview into what it’ll be like as dental students to be involved in it, PDSA offers members the opportunity to attend conferences held by the American Student Dental Association. These conferences aim at building leadership skills, helping pre-dental students become better dental school applicants and teaching pre-dental students more about the dental field.

National Leadership Conference
PDSA has had a wonderful opportunity attending the National Leadership Conference (NLC) hosted by the American Dental Student Association (ASDA) over the past few years. The National Leadership Conference (NLC) is a three day event that takes place once a year and is held in Chicago, Illinois. At this conference pre-dental and dental students from schools all over the United States come together to receive leadership training. At this conference, attendees get to attend a variety of sessions, each with different speakers and activities throughout the day. Attendees choose to attend each session from the schedules that they create on their own based on personal knowledge, experience, and interests. Attending these different sessions allows pre-dental and dental students to develop leadership skills that will benefit them personally and academically as they go on to become future dental students or future practitioners, as well as leaders in organized dentistry. Additionally, NLC includes a dental expo, where attendees meet and interact with vendors and have the opportunity to learn about services, products, and new technologies arising in the dental field.
Save the Date! This year’s NLC will be held in Chicago, Illinois on Nov. 16-18, 2018.
Every year PDSA offers two scholarships to provide financial assistance to two of it’s members who plan to attend the National Leadership Conference! This year, we are excited to be offering three scholarships! More details about the application for the PDSA National Leadership Conference Scholarship can be found below:
