Fusion Dental has completed a $25,000 endowment to the University of Maryland’s School of Dentistry. We did this, our first ever endowment, because of the high value we place on education as the foundation of everything we do at Fusion Dental, from general dentistry to an extensive array of dental specialty areas. In addition to me, many of our dentists trained and studied at UMD’s School of Dentistry.
Our endowment was not just because many of our dentists were trained at the distinguished UMD School of Dentistry, instead we are hoping to help foster the next generation of dental team practitioners. The endowment will help to support the professional dental practice model that we at Fusion Dental employ: a team of dental professionals trained in state-of-the-art dental specialty areas, all working together as a team under one roof. This model ultimately serves one goal: to provide the best possible level of dental service to our patients.
The endowment to the UMD School of Dentistry, originally established as the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1840, was presented last month to the school’s Dean, Christian S. Stohler, DMD, by our Board of Directors, which includes Gregory Bob, DDS; Scott Synnott, DDS; Christine Sullivan, DDS as well as myself. The money will be used at the school’s discretion.
The UMD School of Dentistry also has the distinction of being the world’s first dental college, so we are extremely proud to be affiliated with this dental education and research university.
