ACP Represented at ASDA Annual Session
Dr. Aaema Athar, Chief Prosthodontic Resident at the University of Pittsburgh, represented the ACP at the 2019 Annual Session of the American Student Dental Association, which brought nearly 600 dental students to Pittsburgh.
"We had a great time talking to curious dental students about specializing in prosthodontics," said Dr. Athar. "There were many students who recognized how challenging prosthodontics can be. Despite that, quite a few students were drawn to the creative, troubleshooting aspects of prosthodontics. The most popular topics discussed were implants, esthetics, and digital dentistry. Overall, the consensus was that it's a great time to be a prosthodontist!"
This conference is a source of personal and professional development: career planning, business and financial leadership, advocacy, professional issues, chapter leadership, and management. This meeting is the official gathering of ASDA's House of Delegates, where policies are set and leaders are elected.
Students that dropped by the booth learned about prosthodontic residency programs, careers in prosthodontics, and the benefits of ACP student membership.
