AO Tooth Day @ Fenway reflection by Jordan Siegel (D18)

On July 18th, 2017 Alpha Omega participated in the annual Tooth Day at Fenway. The night begun with several members and faculty mentors promoting oral health awareness and performing oral cancer screenings to fans. Then the rest of the night was spent watching the Red Sox game against the Toronto Blue jays (:

“Tooth day is a successful event every year! It’s a great opportunity to reach out to a local community and raise oral health awareness and also promote Tufts Dental School. We all felt that many of the vendors working at the game not only anticipate the event each year now but are very grateful for the screenings and toothbrushes/pastes. We got many thanks from potential new patients, and one vendor even brought us over food as a thank you!
Participants:Megan Milder (D18), Jordan Siegel (D18), Lauren Trager (D18), Dr. Paul Trombley, and Dr. Tanya Wright
