and is looking forward to transitioning our Executive Board to continue the efforts of mobilizing for increased visibility, inclusivity, and action.

Our mission is to provide a safe and open environment for LGBTQ and Ally dental students to connect and socialize. Our efforts aim at increasing LGBTQ cultural awareness to help empower faculty and students to become more culturally competent and sensitive when interacting with patients and other members of the LGBTQ community. We are working as a group to expand our community outreach and partnerships with organizations in the Boston area to promote oral health awareness for the LGBTQ community. We organize community service events that provide oral health education and refer resources to LGBTQ communities that experience heightened barriers to dental and healthcare access.
