UNC DentistrE News

March 6, 2013

Dear Friend of the UNC School of Dentistry:

In the Office of Advancement, we’re completely in the throes of organizing all our spring events. They start next week with our annual Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards dinner and the events don’t slow down until Commencement in May! Needless to say, our office is going to be busy for the next few months!

We're working hard to get the Spring issue of the North Carolina Dental Review completed and to press so you can enjoy seeing all that our school has been doing since the fall! Don’t be looking for it too soon, though! As we mentioned in the December DentistrE-News, the UNC Craniofacial Center won the ADEAGies Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement in the academic dental institution category, and we’re holding the issue a few weeks so we can give you coverage of that award presentation!

The annual Hinman Meeting in Atlanta is coming up in a few weeks! If you're planning to attend, be sure to drop by the UNC School of Dentistry Alumni Reception on Friday, March 22 at 6 p.m. for drinks and appetizers! The reception will be held in the Maple Room at the Omni.

Invitations recently went out for the 19th School of Dentistry Golf Tournament scheduled for Friday, April 12 at Finley Golf Course! Join us for a fun-filled day on the greens! If you didn't get an invitation and would like to register for the tournament, reach out to Sarah Andrews (919.537.3259, and she’ll get an invitation out to you.

Keep watching your mail for your Second Annual Best of Dentistry Weekend invitation, which went out last week! Don’t forget: space is limited at our Best of Dentistry Gala Dinner on Friday, April 26 at the Carolina Inn, so get your RSVPs in early! And if your D.D.S. class is up for your five-year cycle class reunion, we hope you’ll come to Chapel Hill and reconnect with classmates at the D.D.S. Class Reunions on Saturday, April 27. We know it’s going to be an exciting, fun weekend so please plan to join us! If you have questions about the weekend, please contact me (919.537.3260,

In preparation for all the fun events happening in the spring - and all the pictures sure to be taken - we encourage you to like our Facebook pages for the UNCDAA, the School of Dentistry and the Dental Hygiene Alumni Association. Once you do that, you can tag yourself in our photo albums and share pictures from the events with your friends and family.

The spring always brings many of you “home” to Chapel Hill, so we’re looking forward to seeing many of you soon! As always, we thank you for your continued support and your interest in the UNC School of Dentistry!

Best regards,

Tiffany N. Brannan
Director of Communications, UNC School of Dentistry
