Business Partners

The Dean’s Club Board of Trustees initiated the Business Partners program in 2012 to encourage everyone in the professional community to step up and join our alumni in supporting the School on an annual basis.

George Englund, Vice President of Issaquah Dental Lab, Dean’s Club Board member and chair of the Business Partners committee, said the business community should readily see the value of being a UW School of Dentistry Business Partner.

George Englund“Having a top-tier dental school in our region elevates the dental community in so many ways. It just makes good business sense for all of us to do our part to support the UW School of Dentistry.”

Dr. Patty Rothwell, '84“As practicing dentists, we deal with members of the business community every single day. Let’s show our support for those who support the school and encourage all of our company reps and business colleagues to stand with us to ensure that the quality of dental education remains a priority in the state of Washington.”

“The UW School of Dentistry is the glue that holds the entire dental community together. The quality of dental education, whether for attracting and graduating the best students or the CE courses provided to the broader community are critical to our area’s reputation for world class dental care. The only question I can ask of those businesses who make a living supporting dentistry in the Pacific Northwest is—why would you not support our school?”
