The Howard University College of Dentistry celebrates more than 132 years of academic excellence, having trained more African-American dentists than any dental school in the United States. While it has been 40 years since I was a dental student at Howard, the College practices the same dedication and commitment to excellence and community service today as it did when I first stepped through its doors three decades ago. Looking back on those years, I give credit to my alma mater for the many successes I have seen in my lifetime.
Many other things, however, have changed dramatically. The force and pace of technology’s impact on the profession and the intensity of competition to recruit top-flight students is just a couple of examples. Even so, these are exciting and promising times. The College remains committed to providing a superior dental education.
As one who understands first-hand the rewards and responsibilities of this great institution, I am honored to play a leading role in extending the College’s remarkable legacy. I invite you—as alumni and friends—to partner with the College of Dentistry by generously investing your support. Join us as we forge ahead to give opportunities to bright, deserving students.
