Deadline: May 30, 2012
LDC is a not-for profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established with the vision of improving the representation of Latinos in California’s dental schools to reflect the growing Latino general population. What started as a grassroots volunteer based mentorship organization has now grown to include the collaborative efforts of California’s six dental schools (USC, UCLA, Loma Linda, UOP, UCSF and Western University), the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA), California Dental Association Foundation and numerous dedicated dentists and dental hygenists. By providing mentorship, scholarships, and other means of support, LDC has been able to assist many Latino students in their academic endeavors.
