News from the IU School of Dentistry

Indiana University School of Dentistry (IUSD) is pleased to announce the launch of a new Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Institute on the IUPUI campus! Perhaps the first of its kind in the United States, the TMJ Institute is a multidisciplinary, collaborative, clinic designed to support the treatment of patients with chronic or challenging dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint.

IUSD is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Angeles Martínez Mier as Associate Dean for Global Engagement, effective Nov. 1, 2021. In this role, Dr. Martínez Mier will support students, faculty, and staff to become engaged global citizens.

IUSD honors the faculty and staff who celebrated milestone anniversaries in 2021.Our faculty and staff are the heart and soul of the dental school. We are so grateful for your service to our students and the oral health profession. This year we recognize three employees who have been with IU for 40 years! 

As dental professionals, we must be educated about the relevant impacts of dentistry on the environment. We owe it to our patients and fellow human beings to take care of this amazing planet we live on by being conscious, informed practitioners.

Indiana University School of Dentistry’s (IUSD) 29th annual Research Day was a great triumph! The hybrid virtual event, held April 12, 2021, featured almost 70 poster presentations, remarks from Dean Carol Anne Murdoch-Kinch and research updates from Dr. Tien-Min Gabriel Chu, associate dean for research. Dr. Marcelo Araujo, DDS, MS, PhD, CEO ADA Science & Research Institute, foundation and chief science officer, American Dental Association, served as keynote speaker.

Each year, IUPUI honors 50 graduate and professional students who demonstrate excellence beyond the classroom in areas such as campus leadership, scholarly work, and community engagement. IUPUI will recognize these exceptional students at a virtual awards ceremony at 6 pm, April 6, 2021.
