Our offsite community outreach took new forms as health fairs and other community events shifted to virtual formats. Fortunately, Dugoni School students and faculty found creative new ways to provide oral health outreach to serve the needs of the Northern California community. Students have been involved in a public drive-through event; organized a virtual dental health education event for kids; provided oral hygiene education to elementary school children and their families through Zoom; and facilitated an online workshop on children’s oral health with an opportunity to “Ask the Doctor.”
Our student dentists have fascinating stories and come from a wide range of backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common: a passion for caring for people. Angela Navas, DDS Class of 2022, wanted a career that combined her love of art and science. Read about her journey through dental school and her joy in helping others, whether it’s at community events or on humanitarian trips.
