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
Tremendous thanks to all of our 2016 Mock Board Examiners – we couldn’t do it without them!
One of the biggest events in the academic calendar for our Perio residents is the annual mock Board examinations, when our regular faculty, affiliate faculty and special guests join together to spend a day preparing the students for the American Board of Periodontology oral examination. Each third year resident has the opportunity to be examined on 6 different cases with 6 different examiners, while our second year residents are examined and observe cases, and the first years observe only.
The examinations are fun but tough, and after a long day everyone (examiners and residents alike) is glad to relax and enjoy happy hour together at a nearby restaurant. This year we had glorious weather – what a finish to another year of Mock Boards!
The sun was out and the view from the deck of Eastlake Bar & Grill is hard to beat – so was the company last Friday!
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2016 from the University of Washington Department of Periodontics!
