UR Students Host First Annual Dental Awareness Week

Public health advocates and aspiring dentists Brandon McDonald (UR ’13) and Yasmin Mattar (UR ’14), lobbied university administration last year to begin an annual Dental Awareness Week on campus. They gathered supporting students’ signatures, produced a video, met with the Dean of Students, and even made a giant gold tooth sculpture to bring attention to oral health disparities in the nation, as well as raise awareness to students’ own oral health.
