I am a clinician educator. My primary responsibility is Assistant Group leader to 28 fourth and third year students. Assistant Group Leaders responsibilities include administrative management of a patient care coordinator, a scheduler, a dental assistant and direct contact with specialists. I am also responsible for ensuring that dental students complete their clinical course competencies. I am the Director of the Dental Student Research Program. My time with direct student contact is twenty-eight hours per week. I am in student contact with teaching 12 months of the year. I am also a course director of a year round course. Besides student contact and patient care, I am also interested in biomedical research in dental ceramics, bonding agents, and composite resins.
