HONORS & AWARDS

Distinguished Service Medal USAF, 1997

Mastership, Academy of General Dentistry, 2004

To attain Mastership, members must first be Fellows in the AGD.

Golden Apple Teaching Excellence Award, 2007

A proud academic tradition at LSUSD is to recognize, encourage and document superior teaching. Thus, at the end of each school year, students in dentistry, dental hygiene and dental laboratory technology select the teachers they consider outstanding.

 

A total of six awards are given: one for each of the four dental classes, one for the dental hygiene program, and one for the dental laboratory technology program.

To earn a Fellowship Award, a dentist must earn a minimum of 500 approved continuing dental education credits and pass a comprehensive 400-question examination.
