GSDM community gathers for Yankee Dental Congress Alumni Reception

The Plaza Ballroom of the Seaport Hotel echoed with laughter and chatter on the evening of January 31, 2020, as members of the Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) community gathered for an alumni reception as part of the 2020 Yankee Dental Congress in Boston, Massachusetts.

More than 500 students, alumni, residents, faculty, staff and guests attended the event, which is always one of the school’s most popular annual events.

Members of the GSDM community started streaming in to the ballroom at 6:00 p.m. Attendees mingled with their classmates, acquaintances, and peers before Dean Jeffrey W. Hutter took to the podium to offer opening remarks.

“I am so very pleased and proud to see such an outstanding turnout for this evening’s alumni reception,” said Dean Hutter. “Each of you is an integral part of our community, and it means a great deal to me to see you gathered together tonight.”

In his remarks, Dean Hutter celebrated the school’s “well-deserved reputation for innovation,” highlighting examples such as the state-of-the-art technology included as part of the Addition & Renovation Construction Project, the recent acquisition of two robot-assisted surgical devices, known as Yomi, and the addition to the School’s curriculum of a course on facial injectables (taught by GSDM Alumni Board President Gigi Meinecke DMD 88).

“As I look ahead to the future, as we incorporate 3D printing and artificial intelligence into our curriculum and patient course, I know that reputation will only continue to grow,” Dean Hutter said.
