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

This past Friday, October 13th, Hispanic Dental Association (HDA) members Sandy Lopez, Lizbette Alcantara, and Stephanie Alvarez had the opportunity to participate with the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures van in Quincy, Massachusetts to raise awareness about the importance of children’s dental health.

Stephanie Alvarez (D20) reflects: “The van was equipped to screen two children at a time and designed to be kid friendly with fun art work painted on the van and oral health cartoons playing in the background. The children were eager to see what was inside the bus and really enjoyed showing us how they brushed and flossed their teeth on the puppets. Oral health instructions were provided to children ages 3-12 and they all received an electronic tooth brush and tooth paste for participating! It was a very rewarding experience and we are looking forward to bringing the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures van to local communities in the near future!”
