School of Dentistry Reaching for Excellence
Dean Michael Reddy, DMD, D.M.Sc., and his team have ambitious goals for the school in the coming years in its efforts to optimize oral health in Alabama and beyond.
Over the next five years, the school will evolve its robust strategic plan initially developed when Reddy became dean in 2012. That plan reaches for excellence in the educational experience, enhances its diversity, broadens its capacity to help others in communities throughout the state, and adds to its degree, certificate and fellowship programs.
“Our greatest asset is our people — our students, faculty, staff and alumni — and they demonstrate that every day in their compassion, ambition and work,” Reddy said. “They help us sustain a tradition of excellence in community service, research and scholarship, ethics and professionalism, and clinical dentistry. The result is a school that can aggressively recruit the best faculty, expand diversity, enhance the student experience, enrich research, increase philanthropy and improve our facilities — all to optimize health outcomes.”
