The 2011 Class of the Saturday Academy

Twenty-eight students representing 10 high schools participated in the Saturday Academy, a 22-week introduction to dentistry for middle and high school students offered by the School of Dentistry, which kicked off on January 22.

More than 100 students in the Minneapolis School District applied to attend this new program. The Saturday Academy is one initiative of the new Building Bridges to a Career in Dentistry Program, which was created to enhance access to dental care for underserved communities by increasing diversity in the dental workforce.

Minnesota Urban AHEC is proud to be a partner of the Saturday Academy and the Building Bridges to a Career in Dentistry Program.
