Recognizing Part-Time and Volunteer Faculty
The UCLA School of Dentistry owes a debt of gratitude to the individuals
who generously shared their time and expertise in the service of educating dental
students and residents during academic year 2008-09. The school could not
successfully operate its teaching and patient care programs without the involvement
of part-time and volunteer faculty. Thank you.
