ASDA’s Smile, Share, and Care is off to a great start and we are looking for more volunteers to participate in this year’s program!
Smile, Share, and Care meets every Monday from 4:15-5:15pm and we provide Oral Hygiene Instruction and fun dentistry related activities to preschool students at the Wang YMCA across the street. If you’re looking to have a great time working with some awesome kids, sign up!

On February 6th from 9AM-12PM, AAPD members along with Dr. Martha Forero, a clinical instructor in the Pediatric Department, will be heading to Josiah Quincy School for Lessons in a Lunchbox! The members will pass out lunchboxes containing toothbrushes and toothpaste, as well as teach the kids about the importance of oral health and proper nutritional habits.

During Sharewood Project dental sessions, students meet with visitors from the local community to conduct oral health/ cancer screenings, demonstrate proper oral hygiene instructions, apply fluoride varnish, and help in referrals for further dental treatment.
We will meet at 5:15 PM by the cafe near the main entrance of the hospital (ABP) and head out together on the Orange Line to the First Church in Malden.

Looking for something to do on a Friday night? Interested in learning how to Salsa Dance? Do you want to get involved in raising money for a charity?
If you have answered yes to either of the above questions, Give Kids a Smile along with Alpha Omega are hosting a Salsa Night on Friday, February 9th from 6-9PM, in efforts to raise money for TUSDM’s 2nd annual Give Kids a Smile event.

The class costs $10 for dancing only and $15 for dancing and drinks! There will also be snacks provided for everyone. See the attached flyer for ways to sign-up. Thank you!
