Every year at Alumni Day the LSU School of Dentistry has an opportunity to recognize excellence among alumni and faculty. In 2016, five worthy individuals were recognized for their commitment and service to the dental profession. We extend our appreciation and thanks for their many contributions.
Under the leadership of Dr. Janice Townsend, the LSUSD Department of Pediatric Dentistry has expanded opportunities for dental care for underserved children. Three recent grant awards and an outreach event are helping children in the community to receive dental care and establish a dental home.
