Part-time faculty members of the 2015 – 2016 academic year

June 15, 2016

Part-time faculty members are generous practitioners, specialists, and dental hygienists in the community

Excellent Teachers

UBC Dentistry is dedicated to progressive dental education with the goal of preparing today’s students for the changing oral health needs of the community. The Faculty embraces a hybrid-problem-based learning curriculum that emphasizes professionalism, student-centered learning and self-directed study. Students are encouraged to apply what they learn in behavioural sciences to the clinical environment. The clinical aspects of the curriculum emphasize mentorship, demonstration of clinical procedures, and incremental achievement of competency in patient-centered clinics. To help the faculty accomplish these goals, it counts on the contributions of general practitioners, specialists, and dental hygienists in the community who are generous enough to serve as part-time faculty members.

Meet the Part-Time Faculty at UBC Dentistry

Part-time faculty members are dental professionals committed to education, the profession and the community. They come from far and wide across the lower mainland—often giving up practice or personal time—to fill roles as clinical instructors, clinical educators, small-group learning tutors and community service tutors. Students working in the oral health centre or during study sessions turn to them for help and guidance throughout their four years of education—these dedicated people are important mentors to dental and dental hygiene students. Part-time faculty members answer questions, demonstrate procedures, provide feedback, offer tips, share their experience, and commiserate—they too were once students. They are a valuable source of information giving students, who have lots of questions, the necessary differing opinions they need. UBC Dentistry couldn’t be a dental or a dental hygiene school without its part-time faculty members. Collectively they contribute thousands of hours to UBC.
