Student Community Outreach for Public Education: Overview of DDS 2021

Our project illustrates DDS 2021’s involvement in community service and public outreach events despite being hit with a global pandemic halfway through our dental school career. We demonstrated how we were able to adapt to a new normal, where most outreach would be done in a distanced and safe manner, following public health guidelines. We created virtual events to reach out to communities and provide public education. We partnered with the Dugoni school to run a Covid-19 vaccine clinic throughout winter and spring quarters to help vaccinate not only the school but also members of our community. With these initiatives, we were able to help fight the pandemic while also providing public education regarding dental health during these unique times.
