Dr. Bethea (guest speaker) and scholarship recipients at AABE's Annual Scholarship Luncheon.
Deeper Than Dentistry was formed to empower individuals to pursue careers in the field of healthcare and related subjects, to provide resources and services to the uninsured and underserved, and to assist youth with tools beneficial for overcoming adversity and becoming productive citizens in society.
Making sure we do our part to ensure our youth are well equipped to pursue their professional dreams is vital. Program activities range from routine check-ins to opportunities to work alongside Dr. Bethea and other healthcare professionals.
We regularly participate in speaking engagements with youth of all ages regarding not just careers in healthcare, but also developing essential life skills and small business ownership.
Periodically, we host community events for our uninsured and underserved neighbors to provide them with free dental screenings and extractions. We hope to expand this service to include free medical screenings and advice as well.
We provide dental and medical supply kits to our homeless and underserved populations on a quarterly basis. We hope to achieve a goal of 100 kits per quarter.
Every year, we hope to sponsor at least one of the students enrolled in our mentorship program to attend a medical or dental conference. This sponsorship will include conference fees, travel, and lodging.
