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


The student chapter of Special Smiles at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine serves to enrich the educational experience of TUSDM students interested in the care of patients with special health care needs and IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities) and better prepare them to provide oral health care services to underserved populations by fostering a collaborative, informative and community service oriented network of students, faculty and special care experts.
