ACP Fellow and Past President Dr. Lily T. García has been named Dean of the School of Dental Medicine at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, effective Sept. 1, 2019.

“I want students not only to feel UNLV is a great learning environment, but that Nevada is a great place to grow professionally and to thrive in their practices while providing good oral health care for our community,” said Dr. García.
