Drs. Akimoto and Mathews Receive 2016 Director’s Awards

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.
