I was wondering if I could get some advice on what I could do to as a predental except academic work.

- Is there ADA dental membership that you could join or something like this?

- Are there good dental magazines to read to learn about dentistry?

Any other activity I could do...any advice would be appreciated.

Get INVOLVED and show an INTEREST in Dentistry. Whether it be service in the community, work, shadowing a dentisty, sports, or other extracurricular activities. Join a pre-dent club if your school has one. And yeah, take some time to read dental journals or articles at least to know what the current issues are and to peak your interest. There are free articles you can read on ADA.org.

Good luck!
