Each year the sophomore, junior and senior students vote to select a basic sciences and a clinical sciences Teacher of the Year, in recognition of their excellence, innovation and effectiveness in teaching of the dental sciences.

“Teachers have a profound impact on their students, and great teachers even more so. I believe that there is no higher honor than having students single you out as one of the best and these two faculty members are highly deserving of this honor,” said Robert Primosch, D.D.S., M.S., MEd., associate dean for education.

Foerster, a clinical associate professor in oral and maxillofacial surgery, was selected as 2010-11 Clinical Sciences Teacher of the Year. Bhattacharyya, an associate professor in oral and maxillofacial diagnostic sciences, was voted the 2010-11 Basic Sciences Teacher of the Year. Bhattacharyya also received this honor for the 2004-05 year.

Both winners receive a $2,000 cash award and a trophy, their names will be added to a plaque in Room D3-3, and they’ll be honored at a reception with UF President Bernie Machen later in the spring.
