Leaders Among Teachers
The UCLA School of Dentistry couldn't train the next generation of dentists without them. Who are they? Fine teachers who have recently been recognized for their meaningful contributions to dental education.
Richard G. Stevenson, clinical professor and chair of restorative dentistry, has won the American Dental Association’s 2009 Golden Apple Award — a national, annual honor that recognizes a dental educator who has made a commitment to mentoring students, especially those interested in academic careers. Dr. Stevenson was nominated by dental school students, faculty and staff.
The Academic Senate's Committee on Teaching recently selected 14 Senate and non-Senate faculty members and teaching assistants for its prestigious Distinguished Teaching Awards. Among those honored was our very own Dr. Fariba Younai, clinical professor of oral medicine.
