Dental Dean's Council

Placeholder for cover image on this page

The Hunt School of Dental Medicine welcomes its inaugural Dental Dean’s Council, consisting of volunteer community leaders selected for their expertise and community advocacy. The council will work with Richard Black, D.D.S., M.S., founding dean of the Hunt School of Dental Medicine, to chart the future of the school.

The Dental Dean’s Council will advocate among organizations, businesses and nonprofits to increase community engagement and build collaborations that benefit families across our Borderplex region. That connection with the community will expand partnerships allowing the Hunt School of Dental Medicine to expand its reach of service and create a dental home for underserved patients who might be uninsured.
