“One of my main goals is to improve access to quality oral healthcare for all,” Tucker wrote in her application. “One of my missions in life has always been to help serve those most in need. I strive to look for ways to give back to my community through volunteering my time to help those less fortunate. I am committed to serving individuals who require care the most but are often denied the right because of financial or geographical reasons. I am committed to supporting dental education and increasing access to quality oral healthcare for all people, particularly the underserved. Every person deserves the best care no matter what neighborhood they live in or social status they possess. As I have done throughout college, I will continue to serve and volunteer for my community.”
