She received several awards including the All-American Scholar Award, Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities, and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award. Her versatility in excelling both in and out of the classroom was evident as she continued on to professional school.

At The University of Tennessee, Memphis College of Dentistry, she was president of The Student National Dental Association, inducted into the IMHOTEP Leadership Society, and served as the student representative for the admissions committee. She was heavily involved in research and as a result, was chosen to represent the school at various meetings throughout the country. Upon graduation from dental school, Dr. Rosenthal became an associate at a local dental corporation.

In 2010, Dr. Rosenthal was one of twelve dentists in the nation selected to participate in the American Dental Association’s Institute for Diversity in Leadership. This undertaking birthed her non-profit organization, The 516 Foundation. One of the primary components of the foundation is the Determined to be a Doctor Someday (D.D.S.) initiatives, which exposes under-represented and/or underprivileged youth to various careers in healthcare.

In 2014, she was awarded the Joseph L. Henry Oral Health Fellowship at Harvard University, which allowed her to attend Harvard tuition-free. During her tenure at the University, she worked with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers to help identify areas of inefficiency within their dental site entities.
