Stephanie-Sayegh"As a predental member, ASDA helped open doors for me to make connections with current dental students. It was through these connections that I was able to gain valuable insight into what day-to-day life was like and what to expect. It was a great resource for all of my questions regarding applying to dental school, how to prepare/etc."
