UNC DentistrE News

August 8, 2013

Dear Friend of the UNC School of Dentistry:

It's that time of year again here in Chapel Hill. The campus is starting to build with excitement as the University prepares for students of all interests and ages to come back to the Southern part of Heaven.

As for the School of Dentistry, we're specifically preparing for our students to begin their fall semester. The hallways, for now, are fairly quiet and the Atrium has plenty of available space, but in just a few short weeks we'll be filled to the brim with all our students and residents, returning and new, reoccupying our classrooms, clinics and labs.

We've been fortunate to add a few members to our School of Dentistry family over the last few months! In late June, we welcomed Ms. Deedra Donley as the director of the Continuing Dental Education and AHEC programs. Some of you may know her already since she's been with the school in an interim capacity since the fall. Dr. Lewis Lampiris joined us on July 1 as director of the DISC program and a clinical associate professor in the Department of Dental Ecology. Also on July 1, Dr. Robert Wright began his appointment with the school as the chair of the Department of Prosthodontics. We're thrilled to have these additions here in Chapel Hill and hope you'll get the chance to meet all of them in person soon.

We have a few things coming up in the fall that we want to ensure you've got on your calendar! Don't miss:

If you have questions about any of these events, contact our office (919.537.3257) and we'll help get you whatever information you need!

As always, if you'd like to make your annual gift, set-up a recurring gift or make a one-time donation to the Dental Foundation, you may do so online by clicking here or contacting our office (, 919.537.3257) to discuss your giving options. 

Don't forget: If you want to stay in touch with the school and our alumni groups between these emails, be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter! You can like the School of Dentistry, UNCDAA and UNC Dental Hygiene Alumni Association on Facebook, and follow the school on Twitter at @UNCDentistry.

Thank you for your continued investment in and support of our school! I hope to see you in Chapel Hill soon!
