Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of Schulich Dentistry’s Oral Health, Total Health (OHTH) chapter at The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University.

This program is designed to improve the oral health of children and adults with special needs and is managed entirely by dental students, including all related fundraising events. OHTH exemplifies the need and importance of educating current and future dental students on the benefits of including patients with special needs into their practices.

Since April 2010, Schulich Dentistry’s OHTH chapter has hosted three Sharing Smiles Day events. This is a fun-filled day where students provide oral hygiene instruction and have the opportunity to develop relationships with participants. These events are always an enormous success. The professional ethics and social responsibility displayed by our students during these events always fills me with great pride. The Oral Health, Total Health program enables our students to incorporate an
advocacy role into their experience in dental school, recognizing the needs of our most vulnerable and under-serviced populations.

The Oral Health, Total Health program has my highest recommendation for support.

Sincerely,
drSandhu-sig
