“Senior Teaching Assistants are invaluable assets to the high quality and successful execution of my course in Pre-Doctoral Occlusion,” said Dr. Ferriero. “The student peer interactions are mutually gratifying and satisfying for all involved, including faculty.”

Said Dr. Schnell, “I wish to congratulate the TAs on their efforts despite their heavy schedules. I hope that they got as much out of this opportunity as their students did and that they continue to be lifelong teachers and learners.”

Dean Jeffrey W. Hutter commended the TAs as well. “Congratulations to the teaching assistants,” said Dean Hutter. “Your contributions to the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine are truly valuable and inspire both students and faculty.”
