Dear Friend of the UNC School of Dentistry:

Happy 2014!

The Dental Foundation of North Carolina is thrilled to share that the Hinman Dental Society recently established the school's 16th professorship: the Dr. Thomas P. Hinman Distinguished Professorship in Restorative Dentistry. The professorship will be awarded to a faculty member in the Department of Operative Dentistry soon, and we look forward to sharing that news with you in the coming months. We're truly grateful for Hinman's generosity and investment in our faculty.

There are lots of events coming up over the next few months that we want to be sure you know about, so now's the time to pull out your calendar!

In March, Paul Gardner will travel to Atlanta for the annual Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting March 27-29. We'll host the UNC School of Dentistry Alumni Reception on Friday, March 28 at from 6-7:30 p.m. If you're in town, please stop by for drinks and appetizers.

We'll hold our 20th School of Dentistry Golf Tournament on Friday, April 11 at Finley Golf Course. As always, we're looking forward to a fun day on one of North Carolina's best golf course! Proceeds raised from the tournament directly benefit our students through scholarship support. Look for that registration information in late February.

We're also busy planning our Third Annual Best of Dentistry Weekend. That event-filled weekend will occur on April 25-26 in Chapel Hill. Join us on Friday for our Best of Dentistry Gala to participate in both a silent and live auction to generate funds for the UNC Craniofacial Center, student scholarships and the Fourth-Year Student Clinic. On Saturday evening, five-year-cycle D.D.S. classes will have the opportunity to attend their UNCDAA-sponsored class reunions at the Rizzo Center. Watch your mailboxes next month for a formal invitation and a sneak peek at the weekend's continuing education courses.

If you want to start off 2014 by giving back to the School of Dentistry, it's easy to do. You can click here to give online or contact our office (919.537.3257 or alumni@dentistry.unc.edu) to discuss your giving options.

We're looking forward to an exciting 2014! Thank you for your continued support and your interest in the UNC School of Dentistry!

Best regards,
