Congratulations to Micaela Gibbs, D.D.S., and Ulrich Foerster, D.D.S., University of Florida faculty members who were inducted into the American College of Dentists (ACD) during their annual meeting in Las Vegas on October 10 -11, 2011.
Gibbs is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Community Dentistry and Behavioral Sciences; Foerster is a clinical associate professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. They were two of 318 dentists inducted during the most recent ceremony of the oldest national honorary organization for dentists.
ACD members are expected to exemplify excellence through outstanding leadership and exceptional contributions to dentistry and society. In response to serious problems facing the profession, the American College of Dentists was founded August 20, 1920, by the then leaders of dentistry to elevate the standards of dentistry, to encourage graduate study, and to grant Fellowship to those who have done meritorious work. The American College of Dentists is nonprofit and apolitical, and has long been regarded as the “conscience of dentistry.”
