What do you like most about dental school?
I love learning. There is SO much of it to be done – but it’s extremely rewarding to master a skill or obtain new knowledge that you didn’t have the year before. It is even more rewarding to utilize that skill and knowledge to serve your patients well!
Why do you think people should join ASDA?
ASDA has been a very positive part of my dental school experience. I love being involved in a group that spans widely across the dental school, and has opportunities for everyone. I’ve gotten to know a lot of upperclassmen through it, and it benefits me to stay involved in something outside of my studies.
What has been your favorite ASDA experience so far?
I love Lunch and Learns! Yes, the food is yummy. But the variety of Lunch and Learns ASDA has really exposes me to the different opportunities dentistry provides and fills me in on what is happening outside the four walls of the dental school.
