Become a Mentor

"A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself."

Oprah Winfrey

Badge that reads "More than a dentist, you're a great mentor"

Why Mentor

1 in 3 young people will grow up without having a mentor in their life. Mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, as well as social and economic opportunities. Having a mentor who has been through the same challenges gives students the confidence to succeed and supports them through the process. It is our hope that having students working with our mentors throughout their educational journey, will increase the diversity of the dental school applicant pool.

We look forward to hearing from you!
