Saluting the“Unsung Heroes” 
The faces of the people who appear on the cover of this issue of 
UM may not be familiar to many of you.These individuals, and others like them, are some of our “unsungheroes” who perform the vital tasks that ensure the smooth operationof this School day-in and day-out.Our unsung heroes include individuals like John Squires whomakes sure all audio/visual equipment is running properly beforeadministrators and faculty make presentations.Others, like Rob Berg and Jon Sniderman, repair and maintaindental equipment valued at more than $6 million.Nancy Gee provides useful information to patients and prospectivepatients seeking to schedule appointments in our clinics.Diane Nixon is a crucial link to the School’s clinics, informationdesks, telephone switchboard operators, patients, insurancecompanies, and vendors.Mary Gaynor reviews the records of hundreds of students andadvises them about their potential eligibility for financial aid.Ed Steinman manages and secures huge amounts of datagenerated by students, faculty, and staff.Tim Deventer delivers important packages and suppliesthroughout the School.Jeremy Towler ships and tracks commercial lab work for patientsof dental students.Kimberly Smith answers questions patients have at one of ourinformation desks.Two others also featured, Dorothy Smith-Fesl and Georgia Kasko,have been responsible for some of the School’s major renovationprojects.I hope you’ll take time to read their stories. They and the otherunsung heroes who work behind the scenes help those of us who areadministrators and members of the faculty succeed in many of ourventures.Sincerely,Peter Polverini, Dean
