A Word from Past Winners…

Being accepted to Pacific University’s Dental Hygiene Program has been a huge goal of mine for many years and now that I am weeks away from beginning the program I feel a great deal of pressure and responsibility coming my way. In preparing for this journey, one of my biggest worries has been figuring out how to pay for my education during the next two years, the Hispanic Dental Association has helped minimized that stress; I cannot thank them enough!   -Ana de la Torre Ordaz, Procter & Gamble Scholarship Recipient, 2013

The scholarships that the HDA grants will have a lasting return on its investment in its members.  It is during the times that students and residents are in their programs with minimal financial resources that the financial support of organizations are most appreciated and remembered as they graduate and enter their professional careers.  I plan on continuing working with the HDA in pursuit of its goal of improving the oral health of the Hispanic community, working both at the local level as well as contributing to the national level while trying to help foster the next generation of leaders in my community. – Alfonso Navarrete Scholarship Recipient 2010

Dental school is expensive and the HDAF was very generous.  Not only did I get support but also in terms of mentorship, I was really blessed to serve as the student trustee alongside people who held a wealth of knowledge and experience. When facing obstacles, it is encouraging to know that you can find like-minded people who journey along in this path. -Raquel Capote, Scholarship Recipient
