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.
