Dental College of Georgia recognizes faculty, staff at annual retreat

The Dental College of Georgia recently presented several awards at the college’s annual faculty retreat on Dec. 15.

DCG faculty recognized several employees for their contributions in the past year. Award winners ranged from instructors to clinical leaders to supportive staff.

Several faculty also presented educational lectures to promote DCG’s vision and values. Dr. Babak Baban, associate dean for research, and Dr. Todd Schoenbaum, professor in the Department of Restorative Sciences, presented “The Future of Research and Scholarship at the DCG.”

Dr. Kevin Frazier, vice dean, and Dr. Gregory Griffin, assistant professor in the Department of General Dentistry and vice chair of the DCG Faculty Senate, workshopped “Developing a Sense of Belonging through a Shared Workplace Culture.”

Additionally, the Department of General Dentistry (DGD) recently honored outstanding contributors for their dedication and support:
