ADO Denture Care Event

On February 15th, ADO visited the Hong Lok House to discuss and promote proper denture care. The Hong Lok House is a part of Boston’s Chinese Golden Age Center that serves and provides home for the Asian elderly population.

Andy Cheung (D21) reflects: “Nay Ho! Today we had the pleasure to speak with our Chinese community at Hong Lok House. Hong Lok House invited Tufts Dental Students to give a presentation about dentures and proper denture care. Dianne Luu (D19) pioneered the first presentation with visuals that were straight forward and Eva Chiu (D18) lead the conservation entertaining our audience with illustrative details on proper denture care. Following the presentation, a pair of upper and lower classmates joined to speak with individuals who had questions about their oral health home care and how they could receive care from Tufts. Hong Lok House was a great learning experience for patient education, relationship development and cultural rapport development. In the future we plan on developing a more interactive presentation with riddles and games developed by Alexis Yip (D21) and the Asian Dental Organization leaders Dianne Luu (D19), Jackie Liu (D19), Katherine Tan (D19) and Le Truong (D21) will continue to develop relationships with our neighborhood families.
