Mission Statement:

The UCSB Pre-Dental Organization (PDO) is a club for pre-dental or interested students who want to find out about the field of dentistry and what it takes to get into dental school. We take trips to tour dental schools, meet local dentists, get DAT testing advice, interact with other students with similar interests and goals, fundraise for underserved dentistry, and get involved with volunteering in our community.
