D2 Oscar Reyna-Blanco has been selected as a recipient of a 2013 CDA Foundation Latinos for Dental Careers (LDC) Scholarship. The Latinos for Dental Careers scholarship award supports individuals of Latino descent who are enrolled full time in a dental program at one of the California dental schools.
"I am very honored to have been awarded a Latinos for Dental Careers scholarship from the CDA Foundation. It was a difficult decision to pursue my dental degree at UCSF rather than returning to my undergraduate institution. However, there has not been one day that I have regretted that choice. The support and guidance I have received from the faculty and mentors at UCSF is incomparable. It is because of them that I have been given a variety of amazing opportunities, including this scholarship."
