“Alvernia is a place where you can make your mark,” says Dr. Rachel Maher. And she has. After graduating from, Rachel went to the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, where her liberal arts education gave her the solid foundation she needed to excel.
Fifteen years after graduating from Alvernia, she still remembers and lives the university’s motto—to learn, to love, to serve. “Alvernia’s mission is very important to all aspects of life,” she says. One of the ways she serves her community is through Give Kids a Smile, a national program that provides dental care to patients who can’t afford it and educates parents, health care providers, and daycare teachers on the importance of dental care.
