Mildred McClain (Dental School), Frank Jones (Dental School), and Clifford McClain (Teaching and Learning) are coauthors of an article, "Increasing Dental Student Diversity Through the UNLV Dental Prospects Program," which appears in the Journal of Dental Education. Francis Curd of the School of Dental Medicine at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Bradenton, Fla., is their coauthor. The article describes UNLV's Dental Prospects Club, a pre-dental education program that has increased the number of underrepresented minority and disadvantaged students in the school by concentrating on outreach, recruitment, and retention initiatives. The approaches used by club members and faculty advisors to achieve this increase are discussed.
