Take a moment to reflect on what leadership means to you, and then see how ASDA can fit into that definition, even as a predental student.
The rise in student loan debt is one of the most significant challenges for a new doctor. It’s not uncommon to meet recent graduates with loans that exceed $500,000, with interest at 7 percent or more.

Hurricane Florence made landfall south of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, on Sept. 14. Classified at its peak as a Category 4 hurricane, the storm’s winds reached speeds of 130 mph. It caused 53 casualties and at least $12.7 billion worth of damage from flooding to the area in its path, according to an Oct. 24, 2018, Engineering News-Record article. The hurricane might be over, but flooding remains. In some areas, it may take years to rebuild from the damage.

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and occlusion, despite functionality. However, the importance of functionality in smile design must not be overlooked.
