Important update: Registration for summer 2024 will open April 1.

Our Minorities in Dentistry workshop is designed to promote dental education for ethnic and cultural groups who are underrepresented in the dental industry. As a participant, you’ll learn why dentistry is an excellent career choice, how to get into a dental or dental hygiene program, and how to finance your education.

Current dentistry and dental hygiene students will be available to share their personal journeys and answer your questions. You will also hear alumni share their personal stories of success.

The workshop is limited to 50 participants. Slots are usually filled before the deadline, so we encourage you to register early.
