If you're just getting started investigating whether or not dental school is the right choice for you, we have a lot of great resources for people starting on the path towards dentistry!



Part of what we do at Colorado ASDA is put on events where predental students can gain hands-on experiences that will give them an edge in applying to dental school. Find out when our next Predental event is at our calendar HERE.

Summer Predental Academy

CO ASDA’s trademark Predental event, the Predental Academy, occurs every summer on select Saturdays. The event will provide participants with an incredible jumpstart on their application, including presentations by our admissions staff, faculty, and students.

You will be exposed to what life is like as a dental student, learning not only about the application, admissions, interviews, and personal statements, but also the ins and outs of the profession. Half of each day will be spent in the school’s state-of-the-art tech and sim clinics, where participants will get significant exposure to waxing and drilling activities. Other planned activities include: mock interviews and meet with staff and administration. 

This event is not to be missed, and will greatly lend to your application and interview arsenal. Stay posted about program dates and times! The 2017 Academy will be taking place on the first four Saturdays of July from 8 to 12, Sign up HERE  before it’s too late!

Predental Day

Each semester, Spring and Fall, Colorado ASDA hosts a Predental Day where anyone interested in applying to dental school can head up to campus to learn more about life as a dental student. This day is dedicated to providing Predental student with information on application processes, advice for applying, life in dental school, and meetings with administration and staff! It is highly encouraged to attend these events if you are adamant about acceptance into dental school or just want to learn more about it. Stay posted for future dates!

Fall Predental Conference

During the Fall of 2017, CO ASDA is planning to host the first ever Predental Conference! This day, to be held on a Saturday, will be very different from our past Predental events. We will focus the day on presentations from all kinds of faculty—from general dentists to orthodontists to oral surgeons. You will not only be exposed to some narrower fields of practice, but you will also see some very cool and inspiring cases. This event is not to be missed! Please join us on October 7th from 7:30am until 2:00pm!

Shadowing opportunities

Throughout the year, CO ASDA will be organizing some shadowing days to expose Predents what life is like as a student. If you wish to shadow a student, please reach us at, specifying what you want to see and when you are available. Due to the busy nature of our clinics, significant advanced notice is appreciated.


Campus Visits and Student Panels:  

CO ASDA is happy to come to your home campus to present to your Predental Clubs! Because our clinics end at 5 PM, after hours appointments can be arranged. Again, due to the busy nature of our clinics, significant advanced notice is appreciated. Please reach out to us at if you are interested in organizing an event. 


Predental Resources

Being a predental member of ASDA comes with a lot of benefits and resources both on the local and national level. We have tried to make our resources comprehensive, easy to read, and convenient by putting them all on one page. We also have a list up coming Predental Events.
