2008 Dental Hygiene Alumnus of the Year Award
This selection was made by vote of a committee with the input of the dental hygiene alumni. This year's selection was quite unusual in that more than one alumni was chosen. The recipients were credited for helping to get the profession of dental hygiene established. They went from dental office to dental office convincing dentists how much their office needed a dental hygienist and how they would benefit from this collaboration. They represented dental hygiene and Loma Linda University extremely well and helped pave the way for future Loma Linda graduates. They have been champions of the dental hygiene department with their enthusiastic spirit and financial support. So, the Dental Hygiene 2008 Alumnus of the Year Award goes to the ENTIRE Class of 1963 with great appreciation for all you have accomplished.
