Orientation began the first week of August, as Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) welcomed a new class of Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) students. The talented group of 35 were chosen from more than 1,000 applicants—representing just under 5% of the applicant pool. The incoming class includes 17 women and 18 men hailing from 18 different states and representing 29 different undergraduate institutions.
On Monday, July 17 the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) community, City of Boston officials, Harvard representatives, and Longwood neighbors gathered to celebrate the School’s founding 150 years ago on July 17, 1867.
Under sunny blue skies, nearly 300 guests assembled outside the School’s Research and Education building to enjoy lunch, ice cream, music and birthday cake.
