Colleagues, friends, and family gathered July 9, 2015, in the Santa Barbara Room of Riverside’s Mission Inn to celebrate with Charles Goodacre, DDS’71, MSD, his designation by Loma Linda University as Distinguished Professor at the School of Dentistry. The special merit rank is awarded to a full-time faculty member who has made distinguished contributions in teaching, research, publication, or creative work.
In approving Dr. Goodacre’s appointment to distinguished professor in May (effective July1), the LLU Board of Trustees made official what was already fact.
Dean Ronald Dailey led the happy occasion with warmth and wit as colleagues gave testimony to Dr. Goodacre’s effect on their professional lives interspersed with small, collegial servings of roast.
Dr. Goodacre is the first School of Dentistry faculty member to receive Loma Linda University’s distinguished professor appellation.
