The American Student Dental Association is a national student-run organization that protects and advances the rights, interests and welfare of dental students. It introduces students to lifelong involvement in organized dentistry and provides services, information, education, representation and advocacy.
-Mission Statement

Whether you may know it or not, ASDA is not just for dental students. ASDA offers predental membership to undergraduate students who are committed to pursuing a career in dentistry and dedicated to the preservation of our profession. Undergraduate students can apply for membership either individually or as a student organization associated with their university. 

In most cases, this will be the first step toward your life in dentistry. It is a great way to get involved with student dentists from around the nation as well as gain exposure to the issues that student dentist and practicing dentists are facing today. 

HoustonASDA strongly encourages you to join ASDA and get involved as soon as you make the decision to pursue a career in dentistry and become a professional!

If you have any questions about becoming a member or starting a chapter at your university please feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to help you out.

All information regarding ASDA's Pre-Dental membership can be found on the National ASDA website on the Pre-Dental page
