A carved sandblast glass sculpture of the Good Samaritan, depicting what has become an iconic representation of Loma Linda University’s mission, was unveiled in the foyer of the Center for Dentistry and Orthodontics on February 10, 2012, during the School of Dentistry’s annual Alumni-Student Convention. The remarkable piece of art was the gift of Keith Corbett, SD’78, MS’81 (orthodontics), and his wife, Peggy, residents of the Canadian town of Quesnel, British Columbia.
