Congratulations to the College of Dentistry faculty members whose promotions were recently approved by UF President Machen and are effective on July 1, 2008.

We are especially honored that Ann Progulske-Fox, PhD, Oral Biology Department, was promoted to distinguished professor. The awarding of this title recognizes her as one of the universitys most outstanding and dedicated faculty members, and the overall excellence of her academic record.
