After graduating, she served as a Blue Engine Teaching Assistant (BETA) of AmeriCorps for a year, where she taught Algebra to high school students in The Bronx. Dr. Abreu has always been passionate about helping underrepresented minorities obtain access to quality education and healthcare, which led her to pursue a career in dentistry.

Her research project received the ADEA Section on Orthodontics Award and the second-place award at the ADEA 2022 Annual Session. She is the recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship Award and the Samuel I.
