Empowering Children Through Healthy Smiles

Give Kids A Smile 2019 brought smiles to the faces of 50 children in only 3 hours!

This morning, Harvard School of Dental Medicine provided free dental care to any child who walked through our clinic doors, connecting 50 families to a dental home. The children we met were amazing, and the volunteers were out of this world.

The face behind the blog

This week was Match Day for dental students in the United States.

I am so honored and grateful to be training in pediatric dentistry at Boston Children’s Hospital – Harvard! My class at Harvard School of Dental Medicine is filled with 34 shining examples of hard work, compassion, and determination, and I am honored to be standing by their side through this journey. In five months, this group of dental students will become dentists!!!! I couldn’t be more proud of this dental family.

Do you have questions about dental school or residency? Reach out. I’m happy to be of assistance in any way I can.
