Bridge of Disciplines (BD) is a project-based organization of dental students. Our overarching goal is to diversify the learning process and help our members to develop an experience through self-driven, entrepreneurial initiatives involving interdisciplinary collaborations.
Bridge of Disciplines members empower each other to invest in their potential by collectively acting upon their own ideas that address personal and professional interests within and around dentistry. Working closely with the organization's network of academic and industrial resources, BD members devise and execute clinical, educational, and service-oriented projects that further their development in meaningful ways. In this process, our members also expose themselves to the practice of embracing diversity of personal and professional backgrounds, thus learning to cultivate creative ways to make a lasting impact on the community.
Watch our Founders share their vision with you!
We believe in turning an idea into an actionable and sustainable project that has a meaningful impact. We vitalize the meaning of being students and building an experience for ourselves and our communities.
Join us in taking the learning process beyond books!
For any questions regarding your future involvement as a volunteer, partner, or donor, please join our mailing list.
Our members are served by the BD Executive Committee and Project Directors. Each Director has ownership of a project.
