Dr. Laila Hishaw, Pediatric Dentist, entrepreneur, and Leader for us all, talks about her work and the organization she has created: Diversity in Dentistry Mentorships. It is a non-profit organization with a mission to educate and empower underrepresented minority students to explore dentistry through mentoring. “We aim to reach our youth early to learn how rewarding a career in dentistry is and that it can be an attainable goal. We work to guide them on the right educational track, shadowing experience, and provide resources for them to be attractive candidates for dental school. Increasing the diversity in dentistry will positively impact both the lives of the dentists and the communities they serve, improving the overall delivery of dental care to everyone”. I guarantee you will be inspired by Dr. Hishaw and will want to respond to her call to action for all of us to support her in her outstanding and effective mentorship program.
