Our Mission is to provide our members with modern resources and hands-on experience,
and to further solidify students' passion for the field of dentistry.

LBPD Mission

We strive to provide members who are passionate about the field of dentistry with the resources needed to successfully matriculate into dental schools of their choice, and to improve pre-dental students. preparation through exposure to guest speakers and recruiters from dental schools, both local and nationwide.

We aim to provide experiences that can best expose our members to key aspects of the field of dentistry and to solidify their passion for achieving their academic and career goals. Member involvement is key, as workshops and job-shadowing opportunities allow our members to gain hands-on experience and to be immersed in real-world environments relevant to the many areas of dental science.

We will empower our members to give back to their communities through volunteerism and we believe that helping the community will not only benefit those in need but will also help us grow as individuals and as a team.
