Recently, Dr. Ken Akimoto and Dr. David Mathews were honored as the first recipients of the Graduate Periodontics program Director’s Award. This newly created annual award is given for “Excellence in Teaching and Meritorious Service to the Graduate Program in Periodontics”.
Dr. Akimoto and Dr. Mathews are affiliate faculty members in the department, and in addition to volunteering their time in the Graduate Periodontics clinic, both doctors lecture to the residents on their clinic days. Everyone here, from residents, to faculty, to staff are deeply appreciative of their dedication to the UW and to the quality of education they provide.

This past Saturday faculty and residents in the Department of Periodontics took part in an ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) certification/re-certification course led by trainers from Northwest Medical Training Group. The training was all day here at the health sciences center, and we give a hearty “Thank You!” to our dedicated team for giving up a Saturday in order to continue to be able to provide our patients with top-notch care.
Every year the faculty, staff and residents of the department gather to show our appreciation for the dedicated affiliate faculty who volunteer their time teaching in the pre-doctoral and graduate clinics. We enjoyed a cocktail hour followed by a dinner program where residents and faculty presented the honorees with certificates of appreciation.
Thank you affiliate faculty for your support – we couldn’t do it without you!
