Carol Stewart, M.S., D.D.S., received the Distinguished Faculty Award from the Organization of Teachers of Oral Diagnosis, or OTOD, during the President’s Award’s Banquet at the American Academy of Oral Medicine Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, in May 2019.
Stewart, a UF professor emeritus of Oral & Maxillofacial Diagnostic Sciences, was presented the award in recognition of her demonstrated track record of leadership in the field of oral medicine, a sustained history of contributions to the science of oral medicine, and participation in predoctoral oral medicine/oral diagnosis courses. Recently, she was invited to present during the American Association of Dental Education annual meeting for the OTOD session on “Engaging Students in OD/OM via Evidence-Based Pedagogies or “Best Practices.”
The OTOD is the educational/teaching branch of the American Academy of Oral Medicine. It was established in the early 1960’s, and Stewart served as president of the organization in 1997.
