mong the hundreds o great acultymembers we have here at the School o Dentistry who provide an outstandingeducation to our students are the members o theDean’s Faculty.Established 16 years ago, the 35 men andwomen who currently belong to this group travelrom their private practices to our clinics at leastone hal-day a week and pass along their wealth o knowledge and share their experiences with ourpredoctoral students and residents in our specialtyclinics.Teir involvement, as you will read beginning onpage 3, supports all o our missions.alk to any member o the Dean’s Faculty,and you will hear them say they enjoy interactingwith our students and the opportunity to “givesomething back” or the outstanding education theyreceived here at Michigan.Many also say that the discussions they havewith our students help them “to stay on their toes.”It’s not uncommon or members o the Dean’sFaculty to incorporate some o what they learn hereand put it to use in their own practice.I am extremely grateul or the time and efortthat every one o them gives to us, especially duringthese tough economic times when everyone’sresources are stretched to the limit.Te presence o each member o the Dean’sFaculty enriches the lives o our students and speaksvolumes about the proession o dentistry.Sincerely,
Peter J. Polverini, Dean
