About IDID Pipeline
The IDID Pipeline Initiative was created to cultivate, nurture, and mentor underrepresented minority students attending college, for careers as dental professionals.
Participation in this program should assist applicants in becoming more competitive and better prepared for dental school. The number of graduates of dental programs should reflect their representation in the population and the communities in which they will serve.
IDID partnered with Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and was awarded the Dental Pipeline National Learning Institute (NLI) grant. In addition to the national learning workshops and online sessions this partnership allowed IDID Scholars to have an enrichment experience at Tufts, May 20-21, nineteen (19) DAT Prep group students traveled to Boston for the IDID Symposium at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. The students commented that this was a great experience for dental exposure and enrichment and we thoroughly enjoyed touring the city when we arrived on Tuesday. Dr. Robert Kasberg, Associate Dean of Admissions and Students, several faculty members, SNDA, and HDA, all welcomed the students with an outstanding program, which included preclinical preparation and restoration of teeth, tour of the beautiful new dental school, and interacting with students and faculty.
The purpose of IDID INSTITUTE CORP is to create opportunities through workforce diversity, oral health literacy, prevention of oral disease and increase access to oral healthcare, thereby ultimately reducing disparities in healthcare.
