Dr. Rocio Quinonez, associate professor in the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, and four school alumni were included in the recent 2013 American College of Dentists (ACD) convocation. The induction ceremony was held concurrent with the recent 2013 American Dental Association (ADA) Annual Session in New Orleans.
“It is truly an honor to become part of this great organization and to share convocation with such an esteemed group of colleagues,” said Quinonez.
Other School of Dentistry alumni who received this honor included Scott Cashion, D.D.S. ’94, M.S. ’97; Roslyn Crisp, D.D.S. ’82, M.S. ’96; Evan Miller, D.D.S. ’89; and Michael “Mickey” Webb, D.D.S. ’79. All UNC inductees are part of the Carolinas Section of ACD. Seven other non-alumni were also inducted as fellows of the Carolinas Section.
ACD, founded in 1920, is the oldest major honorary organization for dentists and strives to advance dentistry through advancing excellence, ethics, professionalism and leadership. Its membership is by invitation only; those accepted exemplify excellence in leadership and contributions to dentistry and society. Today, ACD comprises 51 sections, including five in Canada, one in Europe and one in Puerto Rico.
