Fancy Dress is a crucial part of any dental ski trip! Martin and Kyle, 5th BDS Sheffield, DSSA 2011

Our friends at the Dental Students’ Ski Association (DSSA) have yet another spectacular ski trip in store for all dental students nationwide!

Hundreds of dental students went on the DSSA 2011 Ski Trip to Val Thorens and had the times of their lives (the TeethGeek team included!). This year it’s even more affordable! Here’s how to get involved:

Who Can Come?

The trip has been designed for Dental Students nationwide. It doesn’t matter if you are from Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Kings, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Queen Marys, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Queen’s Belfast or Sheffield, we want you all out there with us! We are all going to be working together in the future, so lets all get to know each other!

Who Is the Dental Student Ski Association (DSSA)?

Students from King’s, Birmingham and Sheffield enjoying a frosty cold beer. DSSA is all about mingling with Dental students from all over the UK.

The DSSA was set up by current students at Manchester Dental School. Because of our shorter holidays we have found ourselves unable to go on our University trips.

We have a lot of experience running student ski holidays. Between our presidents, we have spent a year running the Ski Club of the University of Manchester (SKUM) in 2009-2010 and a year running the Durham University Ski Club in 2007-2008, and have already helped to organize 4 student ski trips.

Our aim is to bring all the UK Dental Schools together, firstly to get a good deal from travel companies, and secondly so we can decide once and for all which is the best Dental School. We are not making any profit from the trip, but are organizing it because we believe it will be an awesome experience!
