Faculty Teaching Excellence Awards
faculty members from the School of Dental Medicine (SDM) were
recognized for their teaching excellence during the School's recent
Alumni Faculty Senior Day dinner. Each year, the senior class
votes on and presents these awards at this event; several of this
year's recipients have been honored in years past.
Earl Bank Hoyt Award, given to an alumnus who is
an outstanding full-time junior faculty member, was given
to Dr. Yi-Tai Jou, assistant professor of endodontics.
This is the second year in a row that Dr. Jou, SDM '99,
was so honored. The award was established by a grateful patient
to honor the dedication and teaching excellence of the 1918
alumnus who was a distinguished clinician and educator.
for the second consecutive year, the Joseph
L. T. Appleton Award, presented to a part-time
faculty member for excellence in clinical teaching, was awarded
to Dr. Steven Liu, assistant professor clinician educator
of general restorative dentistry. The award is named for a
1914 alumnus who was dean of the school from 1941 to 1951.
Lawrence Montgomery won the Robert
E. DeRevere Award for excellence in pre-clinical
teaching by a part-time faculty member. Given annually since
1982, this award is named for a 1945 dental alumnus who, in
addition to teaching, managed dental services at Children's
Heart Hospital of Philadelphia and Philadelphia General Hospital.
