These are wonderful people.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The position of academic dean in a dental school affords an opportunity to observe young men and women growing into professionals. I have seen numerous quite acts of thoughtful kindness and unselfish service. I have also witnessed the personal struggles of students working through their academic dishonesty and the challenges of balancing patients' needs with their own. Professional education is transformative, and faculty members play a key role as models and guides helping students become ethical practitioners.
