On October 20, Hispanic Dental Association (HDA) volunteered in East Boston to promote oral health care to children and members of the community.

Nicolette Angioli (D19) reflects: “So far HDA has had multiple events in East Boston with the Most Holy Redeemer Parish. They have been very successful events for both the children who attend and the TUSDM community. The children look forward to our visits and are very engaged in learning about oral health. The Tufts students really enjoy interacting with the children and being able to volunteer in a Hispanic community.”

SNDA Cradles to Crayons

On October 1stStudent National Dental Association (SNDA) volunteered at Cradles to Crayons, an organization to support childhood poverty.

Heather Smith (D20) reflects: “Volunteering at the Cradle to Crayons Giving Factory was such a rewarding experience. Tufts Dental SNDA along with students from Boston University helped sort through children’s clothes and package them so that they can be distributed to children in need. This opportunity was a lot of fun and we were able to positively impact over 100 children with care packages!”

Smile Squad & IMANE at Medford Sikh Temple

On November 4th, 2016 Smile Squad members started off their first weekend of November volunteering at the Medford Sikh Temple with Dr. Neela Gandhi where they provided oral hygiene instructions along with oral cancer screenings. We are very fortunate for being able to participate in this event that the India Medical Association of New England (IMANE) organized. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the Indian culture while giving back to the community. Dr. Gandhi lead the Oral Health Awareness and the cancer screening to the local Sikh Community in Medford. Tufts Dental Students, Sangita Murali (D’18), Thais Antunes (D’20), Sandy Lopez (D’20), Ramandeep Kaur (D’20) and Simran Kaur (D’20) assisted Dr. Gandhi at the temple by demonstrating proper oral hygiene techniques, distributing toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss along with teaching the community very important oral hygiene tips.
