UTHSC Dental School highlighted in Texas Dental Journal
The Texas Dental Journal featured the Dental
School in a recent issue on the future of dental schools in Texas. The
publication devoted a full 10 pages to the article, with several
accompanying photos of students and faculty. Drs. Birgit Glass, Bill
Dodge and Mary MacDougall, associate deans, and Dr. Kenneth Kalkwarf,
dean, wrote the piece.
The authors outlined how the Dental School has made
the transition into the electronic age through its Information
Technology Committee, innovative Web-based teaching materials and
student training in computer use.
The authors also emphasized that while computer
technology is critical to the success of the Dental School, our
outstanding faculty and research programs have kept the school a
leader in dental education the past 30 years.
