Pre-Dental Student Outreach Program (PDSOP) is an organization created to inform and assist members throughout their pre-dental careers at UCLA. We are also heavily involved with the American Student Dental Association (ASDA), which allows our members to be involved and well-informed with the political agenda of health care.
Our organization provides valuable information regarding dental school applications, the DAT, recommendations for academic courses, advice on shadowing, and resume building. Dental admissions representatives come speak to our members about the expectations from their own dental schools during meetings.
PDSOP reaches out not only to undergraduate students, but also to the greater community through service and educational projects. In particular, we contribute much of our efforts into the improvement of the community through increasing dental health knowledge. Members have a variety of service opportunities throughout the year to encourage involvement.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our meetings, held Tuesdays, 6-7PM on Week 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 of very quarter!
Currently, our meetings are held online via Zoom at:
NOTE: For winter quarter 2023, week 2 and week 6 meetings will be in person. (You can find more detail in our email and GroupMe)
