Hello, Welcome to our page!
We are the American Association of Women Dentists of Tufts School of Dental Medicine. The mission of AAWD is to be recognized as a source for connecting and enriching the lives of women dentists. Our organization serves to not only help our members but also offer outreach events to the community. Some of our recent community service events include support services to women in the greater Boston community at Rosie’s Place. In past years, AAWD volunteers have served food at local women’s shelters and donated clothes to homeless women. Additionally, AAWD is proud to participate annually in the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk along the Charles River. We also host a number of educational lunches for members and dinners with alumni throughout the year to gain more information on educational opportunities. Lastly, AAWD members get together for social events, plan pre-clinic help sessions, and tutoring for our members.
AAWD is guided by the following core values:
We are PRISMATIC
