Join us for Predental day     







Calling All Predental Students! You are cordially invited to the 4th Annual UTHSC ASDA Predental Day 2020! This day is meant to be an informative event for Predentals to gain knowledge about being an ASDA predental member, this wonderful profession, what dental school entails, and how to be a well rounded Predental! 



ASDA is committed to providing predental students with many opportunities to explore UTHSC. We encourage predental students to associate with our current members to answer any questions they have regarding acceptance to dental school or life as a dental student. We motivate predental students to get involved in the field of organized dentistry and show their commitment to learning about the field of dentistry prior to applying to schools. Predental ASDA members have exposure to topics dental students face and what the field of dentistry is like for new graduates. This also includes participating in community service events relating to dentistry. We are committed to providing predentals with information on the process of applying to dental school and maintaining transparency about what the school has to offer.


Predental Day:

UTHSC ASDA’s largest annual event for predentals! This year, Predental Day was held on Saturday, April 4th 2020.  Please check back for future announcements about Predental Day 2020. This day includes informational sessions with dental students and faculty. Predental students also have the opportunity to get hands-on experience in the simulation lab by drilling and filling typodont teeth.  They are also introduced to morphology through tooth identification and waxing exercises.


This is UTHSC ASDA’s premier publication for predental students. One issue is published semesterly and includes topics on applying to dental school, guides to Memphis, tips from current dental students and trending topics in the dental field. Add your email to the mailing list “here” to receive each issue of the PIT&FISSURE.

Predental Day was a great opportunity for students thinking about applying to dental school to get some face time with the admissions committee, hang out with current dental students to ask any questions you have and even get to cut some teeth and fill them in the lab!

  3. You’re also eligible for discounts at many DAT prep sites like Memorang, Crack the DAT and Chad's Videos.

  4. You’ll get added to ASDA’s monthly e-newsletter, The Polished Predental.

  5. Being an active member in ASDA’s Predental chapter will stand out on your dental school application, increasing your chance of getting in!
