1 year ago today… Mini Medical School at Boston MOS (Dr. Ing)

About 1 year ago from today, Dr. Ing shared her summer fun activity at Boston Museum of Science. She had started working with the museum since her days as a dental student at Tufts. When she was asked to participate in “Mini Medical School Day” she presented fun and interactive activities with the help of students and faculty members. The event provided a learning environment that promoted interest in health care like medicine and dentistry.

Check out her reflection HERE

Whether you travel to faraway places or stay close to home, we want to see what you’re up to! Share your summer activities on Instagram and tag #dentalcentral & #tusdm (:

Reflections by Smile Squad!

 

On June 4th, 2016 Smile Squad members had the opportunity to participate and represent Tufts at a local Health & Wellness Fair organized by the United India Association of New England. Oral health awareness was promoted to more than one hundred local families that attended the event. Smile Squad members Simran Kaur (D20), Thais Antunes (D20), Amy Hong (D20), Lindsay Hughes (D20) worked alongside with Sangita Murali (D18), Dr. Gandhi, and Dr. Rungta promoting oral health awareness. Free oral cancer screenings were held throughout the event and families had the opportunity to obtain oral hygiene instructions along with many pamphlets, toothbrushes, toothpaste, that will hopefully inspire them to keep up with their daily oral hygiene.
