Where are our School of Dentistry graduates? Several of our faculty members have asked.
Dr. Gary W. Reeves
We are still able to say – after years of graduations – that 74 percent of our graduates have stayed in Mississippi. Thanks goes to the hard work of those in the office of Dr. Wilhelmina O’Reilly, professor of pediatric community oral health; Becky Smith, education administrator; and Rajdeepsinh Dolia, dental lab aid, who researched all the alumni to try to locate them.
We are happy to introduce a new section of our e-newsletter that highlights our alumni: the “Class Notes” section. I encourage you to send us your news so we can share it with our readers.
Most of us enjoy being connected to our alma mater, and there is no better way to do so than by reading about a classmate, faculty member or friend who helped make your time at the UMMC School of Dentistry memorable. Please email your news items to Bruce Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will be more than happy to include them in our next publication.
As you read through this e-newsletter, please take a look at our list of upcoming events. There may be some you may have missed in the past but would now like to attend. Or there may be events you never attended because you always found out about them when it was too late to register.
No matter the reason, I hope you’ll consider joining us and your fellow alumni who make all of our events extra special.
I hope you enjoy this publication.
