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

Tufts Dental students had the opportunity to set up a table representing Smile Squad at the Boston Childrens Museum’s Healthy Kids Festival.

Mehtab Manji (D22) reflects: “We had a great turn out of volunteers who were engaging the kids into oral health topics using fun activities. The kids had a great time brushing the puppets’ teeth and flossing out play dough from between blocks. I loved how we got to interact with each kid individually and modify our activities depending on their age. At the end, each kid got a goody bag with a toothbrush and toothpaste which made their experience even more enjoyable. Can’t wait to go back next year!”
