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

SNDA members Tiara Felder, Gabriel Thomas, and Heather Smith had a lot of fun returning to Youth Enrichment Services (YES) Academy, a youth development and leadership program for Boston teens, for a dental career workshop. They took alginate impressions on typodonts, played dental jeopardy, and talked to them about a career in dentistry.

Heather Smith (D20) reflects: “The kids were really enthusiastic about wanting to know more about dentistry, and expressed that they took a lot of positive things away from the workshop. Many of the children reflected that prior to the workshop they did not know about all of the recognized specialties and different aspects of dentistry.”
