The North Texas Hispanic Dental Association (NTHDA) recognizes the wonderful efforts of the Notre Dame Court & Notre Dame Place in Dallas, Texas, to facilitate housing opportunities and services for the underserved and in-need senior community. Our mission is to provide service, education, advocacy, and leadership for the elimination of oral health disparities in our community.

The 2015 Annual Gala, which is the biggest fundraising event of the year, raised funds that were allocated to providing a dental screening and dental services to the senior community at Notre Dame. The community outreach project “Give Seniors a Smile” is made possible from the partnership between Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry and the Department of Community Dentistry. Mass Mutual also attended and helped sponsor the event.

On December 5, 2015, dentists from NTHDA in conjunction with dental and dental hygiene students and faculty members from Texas A&M- Baylor college of Dentistry, evaluated the specific needs for dental treatment of the seniors and plan to provide treatment during an upcoming event.
