Amrita Chakraborty

LEND Trainee


Amrita is currently a graduate student in the Public Health program at UConn Health. She
received her Bachelor’s in Dental Surgery and Master’s in Dental Sciences (Pediatric Dentistry)
from India. She then completed her Doctorate in Dental Surgery as an Advanced Standing Student
from USC, Los Angeles along with her MS in Craniofacial Biology. She recently completed her
residency in Pediatric Dentistry from UConn Health during, which she also started her Master’s in
Public Health Program. She has been working with children through oral health camps during her
schooling in India as well as the US. During her DDS, she was a part of a small group of dental
students who travelled across California in a mobile clinic treating children of migrant farm
workers. The subject of disability is very close to her heart, and she hopes someday to be able to
create an institute in India where children with disability can be treated. She looks forward to
being a LEND trainee and utilize her knowledge in serving children across the globe.
