ECU ASDA is proud to have a growing chapter with many ideas and great leaders. Our chapter maintains standing committees that are dedicated to the mission of our school and our members. We are actively engaged in all aspects of the community and collaborate with many of the organizations on campus. Collaborations with other dental organizations like ADEA, SPEA, SRG, SNDA, and HAD. The outreach programs we have implemented have created a sense of tradition and culture through our annual staple events. These include a Smiles for a Lifetime, a program to screen and connect with our geriatric population. A pre-dental program, Exploring Dental Medicine, to provide pre-dental students resources and opportunities. Our chapter serves to introduce our members to organized dentistry and larger organizations like the ADA and North Carolina Dental Society, and hosting a Lobby Day with our local representatives. These organizations have opened up opportunities to our members, as well as connected us to our community more than ever. Additionally, our professional development committee prepares our members to be better leaders in the community and learn valuable skills. We want our members to become informed and prepared to be the future leaders in organized dentistry.
