Pre-Dental Events
Connect. Support. Advance.

Part of what we do at Colorado ASDA is put on events where pre-dental students can gain hands-on experiences that will give them an edge in applying to dental school.

To find out when our next Pre-Dental event is, take a look at our events calendar HERE.

Check out some of the events that we have going throughout the year below!


Pre-Dental Days and Simulation Courses

Pre-Dental Day

We hold Pre-Dental Days multiple times throughout the year. These events are usually half-day events where we are able to take you into either our simulation lab or our tech lab to show you the basics of drilling and waxing.

We held our first Pre-Dental Simulation Course last March and it was a huge success. We had pre-dental students come to our campus for a full day of activities. They were able to listen to a welcome from the dean of the School of Dental Medicine, pair up with a partner and learn to give a dental head and neck exam, drill plastic teeth in our simulation clinic and fill them with composite filling material, take impressions and pour them in stone and more!
