American College of Dentists picks top SDM student

Nikole O’Bryan (SDM’05) recently was chosen by the American College of Dentists as the Goldman School of Dental Medicine student who best demonstrates “high achievement, strong leadership, and high ethical standards.” The professional society’s New England section annually recognizes the achievement of one student at each of the four dental schools in New England; faculty at each school select winners. O’Bryan, 32, was raised in Seattle by a single mother who worked as a dental assistant. She worked in her mother’s office beginning at age 16, and for several years after high school helped support her family as a dental assistant and a surgical assistant. Attending the University of Washington in the late 1990s, O’Bryan worked in a dentist’s office during the day and frequently volunteered at a dental treatment center for the homeless and underserved. Upon graduating in May, she plans to return to Seattle to work in a general dental practice, and hopes one day to teach.
