Building student involvement, fostering civic engagement and enhancing community service to advance public health. 

On September 28th,  Tufts D20 Smile Squad Students (Thais Antunes, Catherine McKenna, Sandy Lopez, and Simran Kaur) and Biniam Legesse (Pre-Dental Student) volunteered at the Medford Health, Wellness and Fitness Fair held at the Medford High School.

Simran Kaur (D20) reflects: “This is an annual fair which is open to the families in Medford community. Dental Students interacted with families and provided oral hygiene instructions to kids and adults. We also gave out toothbrushes and toothpaste to those who attended the fair. During our interactions with families, we were able to tell them about our school and about the various clinics we have to meet their dental needs! Overall, it was a positive and fun experience to interact with local community members and share the importance of oral hygiene.”
