Distinguished Alumni Awards

The Distinguished Dental and Dental Hygiene Alumni Awards are honors given annually to outstanding alumni in recognition of exceptional achievement. Candidates must be a graduate of any program of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and are judged based on their participation, service, and leadership in the advancement of dentistry and dental health, their public service, community service, and/or civic affairs, and their dedication to continuing education.

The School of Dentistry Alumni Society Honors Committee will review all candidates and will select the recipients for 2018, who will be presented with the award during the Star of the North meeting, next spring.

Nominations made within the last three years are considered active and will be considered for the 2018 awards. If you have nominated someone in the past three years and want to provide additional information, please contact the Alumni Office.


If you have any questions, please contact Erin Elliott at 612-626-6884 or estrong@umn.edu.
