Event Highlights


Each of UCLA ASDA’s 20 committees hosts several exciting events each quarter! From the Morale Committee, which strives to enhance our academic experience with delicious treats, gift exchanges, and Christmas parties to the Pre-Dental Outreach Committee, which hosts waxing workshops, mock interviews, and big sib little sib get-togethers, you can always be sure there will be some event planned or in progress at all times! With such a large member base and sufficient funding from our sponsors, we have the resources to put together active, purposeful, impactful, even inspirational events. Thus, regardless of where your interests lie, you should have no problem finding a committee of like-minded individuals with whom to make your mark as a contributing member of UCLA ASDA.

National Award-Winning Publications


UCLA ASDA’s primary quarterly publication, The Diastema, has won the ASDA Golden Crown Award not once, not twice, but three times, in a row, as the highest rated ASDA chapter publication in the nation! Our Newsletter Committee strives to ever improve its award-winning publication by mixing insightful articles and valuable advice with superior design and breathtaking photography. Each of us, from our writers and editors to our designers and photographers, works hard each quarter to put together nothing short of an exceptional publication. Without a doubt, thus, The Diastema ranks as one of UCLA ASDA’s most crowning of achievements.


In addition, we continue to push the limits of our Pre-Dental Committee through the creation of our pre-dental newsletter, The Leeway Space. The goal of this new biannual publication is to give a voice to pre-dental students, connect them with one another, and allow them to contribute to their future profession. This publication also serves as a method of enhancing communication between dental and pre-dental students, not just at UCLA, but also the nation across. It helps get the name UCLA ASDA out there, and has allowed us to extend our reach well beyond the hills of Westwood.



The American Student Dental Association, is a national, student-run organization that protects and advances the rights, interests, and welfare of dental students. It introduces students to lifelong involvement in organized dentistry and provides services, information, education, representation, and advocacy. When you join ASDA, you’re given a voice, in both your education and profession, and a chance to be part of a strong network of future dentists. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop the leadership skills that will benefit you throughout your life.


Our chapter, UCLA ASDA, comprises 20 committees, each one led by elected committee chairs. Their combined efforts and talents, together with the leadership of the cabinet, make up the core of UCLA ASDA. Student body participation and member involvement reached its peak in 2014, with 100% of ASDA members attending at least two UCLA ASDA sponsored events. UCLA ASDA is proud to announce 95% school-wide membership in 2015-2016. If you are not yet an ASDA member, please contact one of our cabinet members or visit the links provided across this site for more information.
