HDA Service & Outreach

The Hispanic Dental Association is committed to improving oral and overall health outcomes for Hispanic and other underserved communities and advocating for an increase in under-represented minorities in the dental profession.  Members can access several resources here to support their local outreach efforts and learn more about the HDA's BOLD (Building our Leaders in Dentistry) program.

BOLD Program

The BOLD (Building Our Leaders in Dentistry) program is a pre-dental mentorship program designed to introduce dentistry as a career option and hopefully influence more under-represented minorities to enter the profession. Outreach presentations and workshops can be geared from Head Start/Elementary to High-School/Undergraduate students. In partnership with Colgate, the HDA is able to provide a grant in the amount of $250-$1000 to assist you in your efforts to reach out to potential individuals and schools who may benefit from this program.  Applications are accepted throughout the year and assistance will be rewarded on an available basis.
