Western Society of Periodontology Seattle Team Meeting

WSP Seattle-logoLast Friday, several of our UW Periodontics faculty participated in the Western Society of Periodontology Seattle Team Session. Dr. Bob London was a key organizer for the event, and Dr. Doug Dixon and Ms. Diane Daubert were two of the three speakers – lecturing to a congenial group of Seattle-area Periodontists, general dentists and their staff.

Dr. Dixon kicked off the afternoon with his talk on “Clinical and Scientific Perspectives for Craniofacial Bone Regeneration”, and Diane Daubert (one of our dental hygienists and a Clinical Instructor in the department) followed, addressing the group on “Guidelines for Maintenance of Patients with Implant-Supported Restorations: An Evidence-based Approach to Disease Prevention”.

The afternoon of continuing education was followed by a cocktail reception, where many of our faculty and alumni had a chance to catch up with each other.

As we wrap up Summer Quarter and start to look ahead to the fall, we want to again welcome our new residents from the class of 2019 into our UW Perio family. It’s been a busy quarter for Vinny Chiu, Jessica Hsu, Jason Kum and Brendan Lopez and they’ve jumped right in and become part of the team.

If you have a moment, check out their bios, and again, to Vinny, Jessica, Jason and Brendan – kudos to you for a successful first quarter!

This winter Affiliate Associate Professor Dr. Martin Rabin (class of ’75) and his wife Teresa enjoyed a trip though the Southwest, with stops for skiing and hiking and visits to many of the national parks in the region. Though the trip was great, they’re happy to be home, and we’re happy to have Dr. Rabin teaching in the clinic this quarter. Thank you for all your support Dr. Rabin!

Annual Faculty Appreciation Dinner

Recently the Department of Periodontics held our annual Faculty Appreciation Dinner, a time for the Faculty, residents and staff of the department to gather and offer thanks to our excellent group of dedicated affiliate faculty members. The affiliate members give generously of their time, mentoring our graduate and predoctoral students in the clinics and in diadactic classes each week and the time and expertise they share with our students is invaluable.

We managed to get all of the faculty and residents in attendance together for a great group photo!

After a lively cocktail hour and a delicious dinner at the University of Washington Club, all of the affiliate faculty members in attendance were  presented with certificates of appreciation – given to them by the third year residents who expressed their heartfelt thanks.

Dr. Frank Roberts was also able to extend a special thank you to the faculty who worked so hard in the predoctoral clinics, especially in the new clerkship program.

This year we were joined by a special guest – Professor Emeritus Dr. Roy Page. Old friends enjoyed the chance to visit with Dr. Page, and the residents were thrilled to meet and talk with a legend of the field – many photos were taken!
