High school students learn about dentistry at UAB

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Some middle and high school students got a closer look at medical professions today.

The UAB School of Dentistry hosted 100 students from the Birmingham area to learn more about the dentistry field.

The students suited up in masks and gowns and learned to do "dental work" on each other as part of the Health Careers Opportunity program at the UAB School of Medicine.

The program, part of the UAB School of Medicine Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, allows young people to become more academically prepared on their way to a possible health career.
