Dr. Dale Bloomquist, Associate Professor Emeritus and Acting Chair of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and Dr. Eugene Natkin, Professor Emeritus and former Chair of the Department of Endodontics, will be honored at the 29th annual Dean’s Club Dinner on Saturday, April 27.
Dr. Bloomquist will receive the Dean’s Club Honorary Lifetime Member award, while Dr. Natkin will receive the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus Award from the UW Dental Alumni Association. This year’s event moves to the UW campus and the newly renovated Husky Union Building.
The Dean’s Club, comprising School of Dentistry supporters who contribute at least $1,000 in a year, has helped multiply the School’s endowments by at least tenfold since its founding. Its members have generated funding for numerous scholarships, fellowships, professorships, chairs, lectureships, programs and research.
