National Signing Day

NSD is held each spring for D4 students; it’s the first step toward success as a practicing dentist. To understand the purpose of National Signing Day, first watch the video. There’s a PERK to watching it! Secondly, complete the NSD online application.

All D4s will be converting their student membership to dentist membership. So, regardless of whether you are taking time off, continuing your education, or going into practice, the Missouri Dental Association, the American Dental Association and local dental societies want to ensure you have the support, knowledge and voice to thrive as an oral health champion. It's easy and perks abound!
