Welcome to our website! I encourage you to use this website to enhance communication with your Alumni Association and the Alumni Association Executive Council Board Members. We all benefit from the continued support of our Alumni Association and I continue to be awed by the dedication of so many of its leaders.
It is a privilege to serve as president of our Alumni Association for 2013. As a 1983 graduate of the School of Dentistry, I can honestly say we have great reasons to be proud of our dental school! Under the leadership of Dean Michael Reddy the school continues to be in the national forefront in research as well as in preparing our students to be outstanding practitioners. It is my hope that we all welcome our newest colleagues into this great profession and, through our Alumni Association, provide encouragement and mentorship as they begin new careers.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your Alumni Association President. I look forward to seeing everyone throughout the year and at our Alumni Weekend!
