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…
Tomorrow, December 3rd, is giving Tuesday. Watch this video for some familiar faces and please consider making a contribution to financial aid or another TUSDM cause you believe in. givingdays.tufts.edu/dental (link in bio).

BS in Biology w/ Biochemistry Minor at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, TX
I chose Tufts because they made sure I knew I deserved to be apart of the school. When we were in the interview, Dr. Kasberg said to everyone that we all should view ourselves as colleagues not competitors because if we made it to the interview it meant we had an impressive application. After interviewing at several schools, no school had made me feel proud of what I had accomplished like Tufts did. They recognized my heart for community service instead of only looking at the numbers in my application!
Any advice for future applicants/current students?
Be patient, find what works for you, and set a goal for the type of dentist you want to become. You are your only limitation so get out of the way and let yourself flourish.
I’m from Texas, I could talk about it for hours on end. Any Texas stereotype I probably fit soooo #yeehaw
“You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” This is only a FEW of the very MANY amazing Tufts D’21 students who have volunteered with massdentalsociety
We truly are a class of compassion, hard work and innovation for the future of our profession. It goes beyond the dental chair. #DentalCentral #tuftsdental #tusdm2021 #tuftsd21…

Tune in tomorrow to watch the first segment of “Journey 2 Dent” ⠀
smilewithjustice and I will be sharing our journey to dental school from our first year of undergrad all the way up to deciding on TUSDM, in hopes to show there’s no set path to dental school. ⠀
In each segment, we will be transparently sharing our failures, triumphs and tribulations throughout our pre-dental days. I hope these videos help inspire and guide Pre-dental students going through the rigorous process of getting into dental school. ⠀
We are so excited for our Faculty Experiences event today! Featuring Dr Campos, Dr Lerman, and Dr Bukhari. We hope to see you guys there! Coffee and donuts will be provided!🍩 #TuftsADEA #dentalcentral #adeacosrf…

Over 40 TUSDM alumni joined Dean Nadeem Karimbux and the Office of Development & Alumni Relations for a Volunteer Summit on Saturday, November 16.
#tusdm #tuftsdental #dmd #tuftsuniversity #tuftsalumni #jumbos…
Today, I had the great honor and privilege of interviewing Dr. Nadeem Karimbux who was recently appointed as the seventeenth dean of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Before a group of Alumni volunteers, the Dean spoke about his vision for the future of TUSDM and how he hopes to maintain the school’s reputation as producing “global leaders in oral health.” We also learned that his favorite word is, “karibu,” which is Swahili for “welcome.” We are very fortunate to have him at the helm of this great institution.

Learned a valuable lesson this past week. I’ve unfortunately been off the gram and off the map for a minute due to unforeseen illness that put me on a short medical leave from school. It’s crazy how much you can miss in one short week but it also made me realize how hard I was pushing myself and hardly taking breaks. Although this couldn’t have come at a worse time (exams, competencies, finals and holiday preparations), it made me step back and realize how valuable self care is through this rigorous process. It also made me realize again how amazing my deans, professors, and classmates are for reaching out to offer guidance and help. Just a friendly reminder to take time and rest so you don’t burnout. Now, back to dental school life and playing catch up! So happy to be a Jumbo! 🐘

This, by far, was my most favorite ASDA NLC out of the three I have been to. Filled with amazing keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities, this conference empowers you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Being my last NLC as a dental student, it was really bittersweet and it has reminded me how much I have grown as a person and leader during my four years at dental school. I’m so glad to be able to share this vlog of Chicago: NLC 2019 with y’all!
