European Dental Students Association

The European Dental Students Association (EDSA) was founded in Paris in November 1988. Now, the EDSA represents over 65,000 dental students in the European region.

More and more dental students do see the need of coming together and talk about their differences but even more about the things they have in common. Twice a year, all the delegates of the European Dental Students Association come together to brainstorm for new projects and keep improving the existing. Representatives of the national members (full and prospective) attend these general assemblies.

Welcome at the 53th meeting of general assemblie of EDSA!
