What happens if I can’t attend  PDSOP meeting?

If you have a prior obligation and are unable to attend our meetings, you can still pay membership dues. Doing so will ensure that you will stay on our email lists, which keeps members updated on meeting recaps, outreach opportunities, and upcoming PDSOP events.


I’m not sure I want to become a Dentist, can I still be a member of PDSOP?

Of course, we highly encourage all students to join, even if you are slightly interested in Dentistry. We try to provide a holistic inside look into the career path and are here to help guide you through one of the most difficult decisions of your life.


Do I have to join at the beginning of the quarter?

No, you can join at any time.
