Fall 2018 - Winter 2019 eNewsletter

Dear UCLA Dentistry Family,

Paul Krebsbach

I am always amazed at how quickly the years go by. This year in particular has gone especially fast, but it’s also been very productive. We passed accreditation; we welcomed another stellar class of dental students; we launched two new projects, the Community-Based Clinical Education program and a new unit called Innovative Digital Dentistry Systems or iDDS; and we also started several new facility renovation projects.

Speaking of renovation projects–we broke ground on a complete renovation of the Children’s Dental Center, at our Westwood clinics, where we have provided care to thousands of children in the community for generations. In our Winter 2019 magazine, we share why this clinic is so vital to the community. I encourage you to read about why our pediatric dentistry clinicians, residents, and alums are passionate about the promotion of oral health and making a difference in the community.

I couldn’t be more grateful to all our staff, students, faculty, alumni, and the entire UCLA Dentistry community for working diligently to continue our upward trajectory. I look forward to seeing what we will accomplish in 2019.
