Vancouver OHTH

Vancouver OHTH at the University of British Columbia introduced Sharing Smiles Day to the West Coast! 

Our first ever Sharing Smiles Day was held in 2017 in collaboration with Richmond Centre for Disability and was a tremendous success! We have been hosting this incredible day each year since and look forward to seeing you all in the year ahead!


Who we are

The co-chairs leading the team are Cynthia Dawson (DMD 2021 Candidate), Rose Kim (DMD 2021 Candidate) and Melody Lu (DMD 2021 Candidate), and can be reached at [email protected]. We are excited to have Sukhman Gill from the DHDP 2020 class, and Jennifer Noonan, Varada Sahasrabudhe, and Bryan Wang from the DMD 2022 class on board with us!
