Worrying about student loan debt? You’re not alone

After graduation, your dental school loans will eventually go into repayment. Staying on top of your finances will ensure future success as a practicing dentist. Although debt and finance management are subjects rarely taught in dental school, understanding your debt is the first step to conquering it.


Do dental students have a skewed view of Medicaid?

We all volunteered dozens of hours to meet the community service component of the dental school application, and we said we looked forward to making the world a better place after graduation. Yet only 43% of American dentists accept Medicaid or the CHIP platforms designed to serve low-income populations in America.


Advocacy engagement: Coming together while staying six feet apart

ASDA’s Annual Session in 2020 inspired me to take a more active interest in advocacy. At Annual Session, I saw students legislating and taking action that would directly impact thousands of dental students. This proved the significant impact we as students could have, and I hoped that I could use my experiences to create new events for Houston ASDA’s members that would inspire them as well.
