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 various organizations, 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.




The HDA is gathering information to update our BOLD program and follow up with our past BOLD participants.  We know not all of our participants may end up in a career in dentistry but we would like to know where your path and journey have led you. Please let us know where you currently are in your studies and how we may be a resource for you. BOLD Participant Update
