Welcome to Colorado ASDA!
Welcome to the Colorado chapter of the American Student Dental Association! ASDA is a national student-run organization that protects and advances the rights, interests and welfare of dental students. It is the largest dental student group in the nation, with over 20,000 members that make up 90% of dental students. At Colorado ASDA, we’re here to make your time in dental school more meaningful and worthwhile.
Colorado ASDA’s mission has four pillars: Advocacy, Service, Dentistry and Activities. You can catch Colorado ASDA members advocating for student issues at State Lobby Day, performing community outreach at the Colorado Mission of Mercy, learning how to manage their future dental practices at our Lunch & Learns, or competing in our annual “dentathlon,” the Amalgames.
We’re fortunate at Colorado ASDA because our national and local dues are paid by generous organizations including the Colorado Dental Association, Metropolitan Denver Dental Society, The Trust, and the Colorado Prosthodontics Society. This means every dental student at University of Colorado is automatically a member of Colorado ASDA—for free.
Organized dentistry is the key to overcoming the many challenges our profession faces. Whether you’re interested in legislation, service, leadership development, pre-dental outreach, networking, or connecting with other students at national meetings, our chapter offers something for just about everyone. I encourage you to explore what Colorado ASDA can do for you, and see how you can contribute your talents to our cause.
Thank you for visiting our website. Let’s work together for a better school experience today and a brighter dental practice tomorrow.
