Dear Fellow UPCD alumni:

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Daniel Chan (batch
1978) in his appointment as Associate Dean for Clinical Services at School of
Dentistry, University of Washington. Dan has devoted his entire career (30
years and counting) in academics and research. We had crossed each other’s path
along the way during the International and American Association for Dental
Research annual meetings. Dan is one of the many reasons that we are proud of
being a UPCD alumni and realize the value of a premier UPCD education. This
is also a good time to recognize all the past, present and future UPCD faculty
members whose many sacrifices (especially financial sacrifices) and
dedication made these accomplishment possible.

Please see following announcement released by the
university today.
