A group of 11 homeschooled, preschool-age youngsters and their parents visited NYUCD in October for a field trip coordinated by student volunteers from the Class of 2012. The student volunteers provided screenings, lunch, and an interactive presentation for the toddlers, who attend the ROC (Resource and Opportunity Center) for Homeschoolers in Manhattan. The event was sponsored by the NYUCD chapter of the Hispanic Student Dental Association (HSDA) and the Pediatric Dentistry Club. Dr. Charlie Larsen, clinical assistant professor of pediatric dentistry, served as faculty supervisor for the trip.
The Class of 2012 volunteers included Rose Amable, Dayana Escobar, Rubi Marconi, Alejandra Ortega, David Aranbayev, Nathalie Lee, Don Do, Dena Sapanaro, Michelle Kim, and Selin Avman.
