s you have already noticed, this issue of 
UM isdifferent than previous issues. Fewer pages have beenprinted. Photographs are in color. Many stories are shorter.However, comprehensive versions of those stories andmore photographs are on our School’s Web site
 This new approach will help us to better serve two distinct groupsof our alumni – those who enjoy reading stories in a magazine and the growing number who use technology to search for informationand enjoy reading online.Technology is a driving force in dental education. An important element of my vision for our School involves using technology creatively in classroom education, clinical education, and patient care.Recently, 160 computers were installed in our four comprehensivecare or student dental clinics. This major advance gives our student dentists and their clinical supervisors vital information about patientsin seconds. U-M Provost Teresa Sullivan joined us for a special “flosscutting” ceremony to celebrate our transition from a paper-based toa digital environment (page 5).Three years ago, we captured the imagination and attention of  the world when we pioneered a new way of learning by allowing ourstudents to download classroom lectures so they could review themon their portable listening devices anywhere and at any time.Building on that success, the University of Michigan sought ourhelp launching its iTunes U Web site. The site includes informationfrom our School (page 8), for example, of recent events and evendental procedures that were videotaped in our clinics and televisionstudio more than thirty years ago. We are transferring content from thousands of videotapes for use on digital devices (page 9).Advances in technology and digital dentistry are major trends that will continue. As the American Dental Association reported two yearsago, “the next generation of dentists is poised to make the dentaloffices of the future increasingly digital, connected, and technologically sophisticated.” We are preparing our students for the future, not just clinically and academically, but technically too.
