UTSDAA President, Dr. Karen Walters, presented UTSD Class of 2016 President, Jennifer Laurence with our Alumni Association Award, for demonstrating outstanding scholarship in undergraduate dental studies and outstanding contributions to the senior class and the School of Dentistry in professionalism and collegial behavior.

April 7, several new dentists and members of the UTSD Class of 2016, as well as several other alumni attended the New Dentist and Senior Social at The Georgeous Gael in the Rice Village area.

Helping Our Future

The UTSD Alumni Association has created a Tooth Collection Program to assist UTSD Dental Students in obtaining appropriate teeth to meet their program requirements. We are asking Alumni to save extracted teeth in jars the association will provide, free of charge. Dental students need help in collecting teeth for lab practicals, mock boards, Boards, and various other restorative and endodontic activities.

The Alumni Association will also coordinate drop off and pick up of the jar(s) from your office.Contact Dr.Joe Piazza at jmpiazzajr@gmail.com or Kathy Zwieg at kathy.zwieg@gmail.com for more information.Please help our future alumni with this important requirement!
