A Message From Dr. Frank Scannapieco

I am pleased to serve as the Associate Dean for Faculty and Professional Development, leading the School’s commitment to develop, grow, and promote our faculty so they can achieve their fullest potential. 

While the primary responsibility for professional development rests with individual faculty members, we offer an environment that promotes personal wellness, enrichment and career development. 

All dental school constituents are encouraged to become participants in our professional development community.  Active engagement by faculty at all levels will advance us all through synergistic relationships.  I welcome your thoughtful ideas about further promoting our ongoing dedication to faculty excellence.

- Dr. Frank Scannapieco, Associate Dean for Faculty and Professional Development
