Tam Van, D.D.S., director of the Senior Care Dental Clinic, is the recipient of the 2011-2012 Professor of the Year award in the Dental School at the UT Health Science Center. The award recognizes excellence in teaching and mentoring and is presented to the faculty member who receives the most student votes. Each class votes for one faculty member. The third-year students (class of 2013) selected Dr. Van. "Dr. Van is truly an inspiration to me and deserving of this award," said Patel Roshan, a fourth-year dental student. "She genuinely cares for us and shows us how to provide the best patient care possible. She loves teaching and we love learning from her."
