Diversity In Dentistry Mentorship

Welcome to D.I.D!

Diversity in Dentistry Mentorships was founded by Dr. Laila Hishaw to inspire the next generation of dentists by educating and empowering underrepresented minorities to explore dentistry through mentoring. Strongly believing representation matters, her passion project has become a recognized non-profit organization to guide and support students from elementary school through professional school to be successful candidates and graduates of dental school. Our vision is for the faces of dentistry to reflect that of our Nation’s ever-increasing diversity.
