Predental Day

Visiting students at predental day

The Tufts chapters of the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and the American Student Dental Association (ASDA), in collaboration with the Office of Admissions, host an annual Predental Day for undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or graduate students each spring. 

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) is the voice of dental education. Its members include all U.S. and Canadian dental schools and many allied and advanced dental education programs, corporations, faculty and students. The mission of ADEA is to lead individuals and institutions of the dental education community to address contemporary issues influencing education, research and the delivery of oral health care for the health of the public.

The American Student Dental Association (ASDA) was established in 1971 to represent, serve, and support the needs and interests of dental students. As a national professional organization, ASDA provides a forum for the expression of dental student concerns. ASDA currently has more than 14,000 predoctoral members at each of the 55 U.S. dental school chapters.

Predental day is a full day event where those interested in the dental field will be able to expand their knowledge about what lies ahead on the dental career path. During the day students will be provided with information about the application process, learn about life in dental school and engage in pre-clinical laboratory activities. Visitors will be able to interact with students throughout the day and get to see the Tufts Dental facilities up close.
