Contour Contributions

Dear Dugoni School Family,

Congratulations to several of our students for their contributions to the April Contour magazine from the American Student Dental Association.

Pedrom Mashaw wrote a profile of alumnus Dr. Bill Dorfman (page 6); Anthoula Vlachos penned a story about sports dentistry (page 24), and Sharynne Isys Alfonso and Patrick Gomez shared their thoughts in the “Probing Question” section (page 48).

Thanks to these students, and others throughout the year, who took the time to share their voices with fellow students and colleagues from across the country.

Building your transparency and communication skills is critically important as a leader. When we communicate in an honest and clear manner, we alleviate fears and provide hope. Frequent and honest communication is reassuring, and I applaud our students for building your networks and for your communication.
