School of Dentistry at the 2017 Minnesota State Fair
More than 700 fairgoers lined up in droves to meet and talk with University of Minnesota School of Dentistry volunteers at the 2017 Minnesota State Fair on Friday, August 25. Visitors to the School of Dentistry booth took a short quiz to test their knowledge about our U-M Dental Clinics and the dental school's research programs, along with general questions about the role of oral health as an integral part of general health and well being. Volunteers distributed toothbrushes, answered questions about oral health care, spent time with a few aspiring dental students, and met some current (and past) patients and staff members! All in all, it was busy and fun day.
