More Than Your Average Dental Student

District 1 strives to provide its members with actionable advocacy items, professional development resources and tips on thriving in dental school.


ASDA advocacy relies on the strength of a collective voice. Learn about the issues facing the dental profession and how to get involved. 

Be Well

ASDA’s Wellness Initiative encourages you to make well-being a priority with a focus on these five dimensions of your life. Wellness stems from finding a balanced way of addressing all of them, as needed. Click on each one to learn more and find related resources. 


Sometimes, the life skills needed to be a successful business owner, team leader and people manager aren’t taught in dental school. ASDA is here to help.

“Nobody expects you to be perfect right away, so take advantage of your surroundings and soak up as much as you can before its over!”

Yalada Rostamnezhad, ASDA Member
