Beyond the Classroom Education

Your career starts in the classroom, but dentistry is a profession that extends well beyond the dental school. It is a profession of on-going education and economics, of government and politics, of colleagues and mentors, and of new ideas and strategies for working effectively with patients. It is a profession of new trends in management and third-party payments, as well as real-life needs like insurance and finding jobs. For all of this, resources are available to you as a student member.

Have a Voice

Dentistry is a profession in the process of constant change. As a student member, you can have a voice in directing that change. Student members participate on committees of the Minnesota Dental Association, the American Dental Association, and the ASDA Chapter, representing student interests and concerns.
