Chapter President's Welcome
Our Midwestern chapter focuses on fostering growth as future healthcare providers both professionally and personally. This is achieved by providing opportunities to our members that pertain to fundamental values such as organized dentistry, advocacy, community service, and leadership. We all can agree that the journey through dental school is taxing, but the goal is to not just survive, but thrive. ASDA motivates us to go beyond the dental school curriculum and challenge ourselves to pursue unique opportunities that can help us network and become true leaders in our field. Our dedicated ASDA members are well-rounded professionals ready to face the challenges and demands of our profession.

Our mission, since 2006, has been to inspire and support every student-member with his or her journey through school and innovate leadership, service, and self-growth within different pillars of life.
Chapter Advisor's Welcome
One of my favorite leadership messages, by Lao Tzu, states that the mission is complete when the aim is fulfilled and the team can heartily say “we did this ourselves!” Being the ASDA Faculty Advisor at MWU CDMA, I can truly confess that our ASDA team embodies this statement. Engaged, forward thinking and empowered to realize goals are three ways I describe our leadership and membership. They embody the spirit of service to others. They create beautiful, well written publications that draw praise and awards. They inspire others to become involved and are active spokesmen for our profession in legislative affairs. I am thankful for the administrative support we receive and to be a part of this amazing group who will, undoubtedly, be dentistry’s future leaders. We are in good hands!
