Two recent graduates of the UF College of Dentistry Pediatric Residency Program scored in the top 3 percent nationally of the 2015 American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) Qualifying Examination. Erina Hung and Amy Luce, who earned their certificates in pediatric dentistry in 2015, won the ABPD Richard E Pugh Award.
Hung completed her pediatric residency in Naples at the NCEF Pediatric Dental Center, a UF-owned dental center. Luce completed her residency in the Gainesville program.
“We are extremely pleased and proud of their achievement. This is the first time two of our graduates from the same class qualified for the Pugh Award and the fact that one was from each of our two programs makes the accomplishment very significant for our department and speaks to the quality of our residents, and the faculty and educational programs,” said Abi Adewumi, B.D.S., F.D.S.R.C.S. (Eng), M.Ped., DentRSC (Eng), program director for the UF Pediatric Dental Residency Program.
