Class of 1975
“I graduated from the Dental School in 1975. I was the first female dental student to graduate from the school by alphabetical order. There were two of us in my class. Dr. Birgit Glass was the other female that graduated in 1975, making us the first two female graduates for the Dental School.”
Class of 2017
“I worked with many different dentists who all volunteered their time and expertise to help people who otherwise would not have received dental care. The different dentists that I volunteered with inspired me to pursue a career in which I could give back to an underserved community.”
