This winter, Dental Central was featured in the Tufts University Dental Alumni Magazine. The article, title “Got Connections?”, can be read in full here! Check out an excerpt below.

“Along with classroom work and clinical practice, dental students are encouraged to engage in community service. A joint effort between the School of Dental Medicine and the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts is helping to make service activities more accessible and to promote civic engagement.

The centerpiece of the collaboration is a website called Dental Central, launched in 2014 as the go-to place for information on volunteer opportunities, group activities and other community-focused extracurricular events. Student groups are encouraged to use the site to list events or calls for volunteers and to post photos and follow-ups afterward.”
