ASDA, ADEA, and Admissions Host Pre-Dental Day!

Tufts ASDA, Tuft ADEA and the TUSDM office of admissions hosted the annual Pre-Dental day at Tufts on Sunday April 28th. Pre-dental day is a full day event where those interested in the dental field are able to expand their knowledge about what lies ahead on the dental career path.

During the day students were provided with information about the application process, given an admissions presentation by our very own Gillian Anzivino, learn about life in dental school, and engage in pre-clinical laboratory activities such as wax-ups and composite. In addition, attendees were able to take part in smaller break out sessions, where they got to ask student panels about application building, DAT prep, life at Tufts, and mock interviews. Visitors were able to interact with students throughout the day and get to see the Tufts Dental facilities up close. It was a successful event with over 70 pre-dental visitors, and both volunteers and attendees had an amazing time together! Till next year’s event, Go Jumbos!
