A Day in the Life             

In November 2019, the Diversity Council hosted middle-school students from the Oklahoma City Metro area to participate in a day-long, fun, hands-on dental experience. Students learned about careers in dentistry, toured the OU College of Dentistry, and practiced real, dental skills, all under the supervision of College of Dentistry students and faculty. 

Let's Guac About It

Students, faculty, and staff joined the Diversity Council for a  lunch-time lesson taught by members of the organization. Participants learned dental, Spanish vocabulary that could be used with Spanish-speaking patients. Everyone  practiced new skills together, while enjoying some yummy chips and guacamole.
