The Waterfront Activities Center is a special spot on the UW campus, and we were treated to yet another beautiful late spring evening, enjoying the sun and water views while visiting with faculty, staff, residents, alumni and family.
This year we are thankful for the financial support of the Schluger-Ammons Study Club. Without their generous donation we would not have been able to hold such a lovely event – Thank you!!
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!
Faculty, residents and staff gather each year for a group photo at the end of the evening.
Make your plans now to join fellow alumni at the Schluger Ammons Study Club dinner at this year’s AAP meeting. The annual dinner will be held on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at Mr. A’s restaurant (minutes from downtown San Diego).
The evening begins with No-host cocktails from 6:00 – 7:00 PM, with dinner immediately following, and the cost is $145 per person (appetizers and dinner wine included).

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!
On a beautiful early June evening the Department of Periodontics, along with family and friends, gathered to celebrate the graduates from the class of 2016:
Dr. Amir Emam, DDS
Dr. Anas Howsawi, BDS
Dr. Michitsuna Katafuchi, DDS, PhD
Dr. Luciana Safioti, DDS
After a program that included a welcome from Dr. Richard Darveau (Chair of the Department of Periodontics) and speeches from Dr. Robert London (Clinic Director) and Dr. Robert O’Neal (Emeritus Associate Professor and the evening’s keynote speaker), the graduates received their certificates.
It was a wonderful event, a time to celebrate their achievements, and an opportunity for the graduates to give thanks to all of the people who supported them throughout their three years at the University of Washington. Continue reading →
