Increasing Diversity In Dentistry
Help us increase diversity and access to oral healthcare
Welcome to IDID Institute Corp.
The purpose of IDID INSTITUTE CORP is to provide opportunities for historically underrepresented populations in the United States who are interested in the dental
profession. By increasing the number of oral health leaders currently underrepresented in
the profession, prevention of oral disease and increased access to oral healthcare, should
be impacted, thereby ultimately reducing disparities in healthcare.
“I have attended the IDID Summit for 5 years now, representing the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC in Los Angeles CA, during which time I have developed relationships with and mentored a number of IDID Scholars, who have matriculated at Ostrow School of Dentistry, becoming strong leaders of their class, and moving onto to Specialty Programs, GPR’s and/or just finding a dental office to associate with.”
