SNDA Impressions Day 2015

Impressions Day is an annual SNDA program that invites students from undergraduate institutions and high schools to TUSDM to expose them to the field of dentistry. The event pays particular attention to inviting students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in dentistry to come and learn about the field of dental medicine and Tufts Dental School.

This year, the event had over 120 high school & college student participants and 60 volunteers from the TUSDM administration, faculty, alumni, pre-doctoral program (D16s, D17s, D18s, and D19s), and Kaplan Test Prep.

During Impressions Day, students had the opportunity to learn about
requirements and prerequisites to enter dental school and hear from some of TUSDM’s most esteemed community members, including Dean Huw Thomas and Dean Nadeem Karimbux. Student participants also participated in multiple educational activities including the following: DAT/SAT instructions, mock dental school interviews, and hands on activities: alginate impressions/composite restorations on typodonts. All of these activities were run and led by TUSDM student volunteers.
