Attention Student Group Leaders: 2019 Bulletin Board Sign Up are open!

The Dental Central bulletin boards on the 7th floor are available to highlight student group’s voice, vision and activities! Use photos and narratives—its a great way to highlight your goals and is a great way to inspire students to get involved.  Show your community service activities…or provide education on an issue important to the TUSDM community. Some groups pick a month that has particular significance to the meaning of their club (i.e. LGBTQA often chooses May in advance of Gay Pride; AAWD often chooses March – the month of International Women’s Day.)

Reserve a Bulletin Board on the 7th floor near Merritt and the Student Lounge: Check out this link to sign up your student organization and get a month of the Bulletin Board spotlight!

Forget the at-home movie nights and cramped-couch sitting this summer (Netflix will still be there when you get home). Switch up your film-viewing experience by taking your family out to one of these free movie screenings in Boston. It’s a chance to sprawl out on the grass, pack some movie munchies (and maybe a can or two of bug spray) and hopefully get some giggles in. Here’s where you can watch free movies, in the great outdoors, all summer long!

Fresh Art Tour: A fabulous event!

Over 60 people came down to the 2nd floor to toast the art and success of the Fresh Art Project! Participants climbed the stairs and viewed the beautiful photographs and asked when we could do this again. Dr. Hanlon thanked The Dean for his commitment to the project and Nancy Marks for making it all happen. Want to know whose art is where? 

Some have also asked which printing company was used, for their own personal photography: NE Digital. Ask for Emily and tell them you’re from Tufts!)

Career Day at Early Learning Center Malden

On May 23, 2019 students and faculty volunteered at Early Learning Center in Malden for Career Day. Approximately 140-150 students aged 3-5 years old came by the table with their teachers. Each student and teacher received a goodie bag filled a toothpaste, a toothbrush and a sticker. Educational reading materials and brochures were given to teachers to distribute in each student’s cubby.

Connie Lau reflects: “It was very rewarding for me to see teachers and students raising their hand to ask questions regarding dentistry, and if our pediatric department would see children with special needs. I would like to shout out to Dr. Forero for her support and guidance to make this event fun for the kids, and Dr. Sprott, pediatric resident, for volunteer her time talking to the kids and the teachers about what pediatric dentist do.”
