Dental Students Shine ‘LIGHT’ Into Community – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Future dentist trainings in Dallas-Fort Worth want to be a “LIGHT” and bring something good to North Texas.
LIGHT is the name of a multicultural, service-minded, student-run organization based at Texas A&M College of Dentistry in Dallas. The mission is simple: bring people together to give back to the community.
On Valentine’s Day, the Dentistry and Dental Hygiene Student Group hosted a Zoom event where cards were mailed to nursing home residents, employees and health care workers.
Fundraising campaigns last year brought canned goods, winter clothing and fabric face masks to government departments that provided help and support to the underserved and homeless.
One of the members said, “I admire the positive energy we share. Not only do we support and encourage each other during the difficult times of the school, we also work as a team to better serve our community.”
