10+ years ago she was my pediatric patient. She had just #immigrated from #Albania. With her limited English, she was inquisitive about the #endodontic procedures conducted. Thorough the years, Marvisa continued to ask questions and payed a keen interest in dentistry. 4+ years ago she started working at Panera breads. I recognized and wanted to groom Marvisa Ferro. I proposed that she serve in our administrative team. She has helped so many patients access care. Translating the labyrinth of #insurance. Yup, she wants to be a dentist now. Today's her first shadowing. She has adjusted her major. Now all I have to do is convince her to being a #Jumbo 🙂 #tusdm #luxdental #tufts #dentistry #dentalmedicine #future #love #train #education #healthcare #profession #ada #massdental

Undergraduate education:

Providence College with a major in Biology and a minor in Neuropsychology

Why did you choose Tufts/What do you love about it now?

I chose Tufts for many reasons. Mainly I love being close to family, so staying in the Boston area was my goal. I also have dreamed for years of following my papa D52, my father D88, and uncle D94 to Tufts Dental. Tufts being close to home has allowed my father to come in once a week to volunteer teaching students hand skills in Pre-clin. This has been fun for me to be able to learn with him by my side. My favorite part of school now is the experience we get assisting the upperclassman in clinic. I feel that these opportunities allow us to learn so much to prepare us for our near future of treating patients ourselves.
Advice for other students or applicants:

My biggest advice for applicants is to be yourself, and trust that everything that is meant for you will come. The ups and downs throughout the process of applying as well as those that come when you are in school will all be worth it in the end. Put all of your energy towards what you truly want. Don’t apply to dental schools that you couldn’t see yourself being happy at, don’t join clubs that you are not interested in, focus on what brings you the most joy on your journey and gets you to where you want to be. You will be happy in the end that you did not settle or change your goals. Take time to explore your city and make time to take care of yourself. Self care is just as important as grades and competencies.
Fun fact:
At Providence College I took so many philosophy courses on human interaction that I ended up co-teaching a philosophy course for a semester!

Despite the finals season here at TUSDM, our Tufts ASDA E-Board members had the opportunity to have a holiday gathering at Lynx Fitness Club. Our E-board members had the opportunity to mingle with each other while enjoying food and playing some virtual golf, soccer, baseball, and more. We are thankful for our Tufts ASDA E-board for all of their hard work and contributions to our chapter and can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2020! #ASDAWellness #tusdm #dentalcentral #tuftsasda #asdafever #holidayparty
