Looking through the newsletter you will read about proud tra-ditions being continued, changing of the resident guard, relocation of our research laboratories, babies being born, new staff joining the ped dent family and numerous other transformations taking place at the UNC Department of Pediatric Dentistry. As the au-thor Gail Sheehy said If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living. Clearly the Department of Pediatric Dentistry shows it is alive and kicking and continuing to grow. The faculty is proud of the many accomplishments of our alumni who set a high standard for community engagement and leadership and our residents who continue to win national awards in a variety of venues. Some of the changes, such as the reloca-tion of our research labs, are somewhat painful. However, our goal is to use the wonderful Research Triangle Park facilities and proximity of outstanding corporate and government research pro-grams as an opportunity to build our research program in prepara-tion to our move back to the UNC campus and a brand new, state-of-the-art research center.

Alumni and friends of the Department played a vari-ety of programmatic and leadership roles in the recent AAPD Annual Session in Washington, DC. Another arti-cle in this Newsletter chronicles the pre-annual session involvement of the Congleton Leadership Fellows, Par-ticipation of our residents and NCAPD members in the Lobby Day visits to Capitol Hill. Program participants included a Breakfast Rounds Session by LaRee Johnson (1999) of Wake Forest enti-tled Do I expand my practice? And another entitled Tips to increase your operating room efficiency. Rocio Quinonez (2000) of Durham gave the keynote address at a featured session called The age one dental visit in pri-vate practice: embrace it and make it work for you. Presenting as two of eight national 2008 Graduate Student Research Award Finalists in the Research Session were Antonio Braithwaite (2008) of Durham and Julie Robinson Molina (2008) of Chapel Hill. In the same session, Ray Tseng (2010) of Chapel Hill presented as one of three nation-wide winners of the 2007 OMNI Re-search Fellowships. All were recognized at the Awards and Recognition Luncheon on Sunday as was Stephanie Blumenshine (2010), who was named as one of three 2008-09 OMNI Fellowship Award Winners for her MS research proposal. Special kudos to Buddy Hollowell (DDS 2004) of Wake Forest, who was recognized as a Pugh Awardee for the top performers (TOP 3 %!!!) on the qualifying exami-nation of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Buddy was also recognized at the Awards and Recogni-tion Luncheon. Mike Roberts of Chapel Hill and Mike Rossitch (2004) of Atlanta served as moderators for the Graduate Student Lunch and Learn Session. John Christensen (1984) of Durham and Sonny Long (1978) of Charlotte delivered a superb Mini-Clinic Session on the Orthodontic management of impacted maxillary incisors. Kavita Mathu-Muju (2006) of Lex-ington, KY, presented a Breakfast Rounds session on How to talk so children will listen. In the Poster Clinic Session, the graduate students and residents of alumni Tegwyn Brickhouse (2002) of Richmond, Lina Cardenas (2002) of San Antonio, Kavita Mathu-Muju (2006) of Lexington, KY and Anne Simon Wilson (1992) of Denver, CO had fine showing, presenting some 10 research presentations. Michael Ignelzi (1992) of Greensboro finished his third and final year as the Annual Session Program Chair and what a fine overall program it was!

Congrats to Jessica Lee (2002) of Chapel Hill who was the winner of the 2008 Jerome B. Miller "For the Kids" Award, given by Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children: the Foundation of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. This was the inaugural FTK Award, which will be presented annually to an up-and-coming clinician, researcher or academician in pediatric dentistry for their outstanding efforts directed to children's oral health and welfare. Jessica received a cash award and plaque at the AAPD Annual Session President's Farewell Dinner on Sunday May 25, 2008.

Congrats to Elliot Shulman (1980) of Morgantown, WV and Leslee Lancaster Huggins (2003) of Provi-dence, RI! They will be among five individuals nation-ally selected for the first class of the AAPD Master Cli-nicians Fellowship Program. The AAPD and the Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children (Jerome B. Miller Fund) has announced the five scholarships. Elliot is head of pediatric dentistry at WVU and Leslee is a new faculty member at the Saint Joseph Hospital in Provi-dence. This years scholarship applicants represent a diverse field of expertise, from seasoned pediatric den-tists having been in practice for a number of years to newly-appointed dental school or residency faculty. The new Fellows will attend the Academy for Aca-demic Leaderships Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) in the Health Professions Program and will have an opportunity to attend the AAPD Comprehensive Re-view of Pediatric Dentistry course. ITL scholars benefit from a hands-on experience with key teaching tasks such as evaluations, lecture presentation skills, test con-struction, small group learning and working with diffi-cult students. Additionally, ITL scholars learn cognitive theory, motivation strategies, learning styles, education best practices and a host of other skills. Sessions on re-search, finding an academic position, strategies for get-ting published and work-life issues are also offered.

Engaged to Make a Difference Carolina has a long and proud tradition of lead-ership in pediatric dentistry and an extensive history of community engagement. This legacy is clearly visible when one looks at the number of North Caro-linians and UNC graduates serving as community and organized dentistry leaders. Similarly, our alums, friends and advocates for the oral health of children continue to step up and financially support the pediatric educational and patient care programs at UNC. You can be assured that this support pro-vides essential funding necessary to continue our outstanding leadership and community engagement programs. For example, UNC pediatric dentistry residents were funded by the Jim Congleton (1977) Leadership Fellowship to attend the annual AAPD meeting in Washington where they joined the lobby day on Capitol Hill and had the wonderful experi-ence of meeting the NC congressional members.

Despite downward trends in the economy the generosity of our alumni and friends continues to be outstanding. Your steadfast support is ensuring that the Caldwell-Christensen Fund will reach the $100,000 in the very near future. We are still about $16,000 shy of our goal so please keep those dona-tions coming in. This fund was established by Rob Moran (1998) and Richard Brooks (DDS 1995) to honor two outstanding UNC faculty members Phil Caldwell (1974) and John Christensen (1982). Please mark your calendars and be sure to join us October 3, 2008 to celebrate this wonderful achieve-ment after our annual fall CE Course. We will cele-brate at the Kenan Flagler Building behind the Dean Dome.

To make giving easier and more rewarding you should consider making your donations on a monthly basis using your favorite credit card. You can earn frequent flyer miles, Disney points or other useful paybacks while not having to hassle with checks and mailings. Figure what you can comforta-bly give annually and then the Dental Foundation will set up 12 equal draws over the course of the year. Be a leader and support the pediatric dentistry educational programs at UNC.

Marvin Berman was the featured speaker at our de-partment sponsored March 28, 2008, continuing education course titled The Dental Team Versus the Reluctant Dragon. One hundred and seventy-three participants from three states were in their seats early as they antici-pated Bermans engaging, entertaining, and insightful ap-proach to managing reluctant and apprehensive children in the dental office. He did not disappoint and there were few who left before the course concluded at 4:30 p.m. In fact, he continued to answer questions long after the course ended and we had to whisk him away in order to make his return flight to Chicago. The Department continues to identify topics of topical interest to pediatric dentists, generalists and their staff who treat children. If you have a topic of special interest or a particular speaker, let us know and we will see what we can do to schedule the topic and/or speaker.

Coming Continuing Education Courses The Department has planned two outstanding continu-ing education courses for this fall and the spring of 2009. We believe you and your staff will not want to miss either offering. So, please put these on your office and personal calendars now!

Spring 2009 Ready, Set, Grow: Pathways for Healthy Living for Tod-dlers, Adolescents and Adults Ronda Gates, BS (Pharmacy), MS Friday, March 27, 2009 Long before Jane Fonda worked out, years before spot reducing outlived its usefulness, way before most dieti-tians understood the relationship between exercise, food, weight and disease there was Ronda Gates. She has writ-ten 5 best selling books including Smart Eating and has appeared on numerous radio and television shows. Once described as the Erma Bombeck of Fitness, she made more than 200 presentations last year! Ronda, a fitness buff with a B.S. in pharmacy and a M.S. in clinical nutri-tion enjoyed the changes she saw as a result of the fitness classes she was teaching more than pushing pills. So, in 1978 she traded her white coat for a pair of athletic shoes and has never looked back. Within three years she had a successful corporate fitness program but was frustrated by her inability to find educators who shared her perspective. In 1982, she reluctantly attended a lecture by Fit or Fat author Covert Bailey, because others had said he talks like you. Soon Bailey and Gates were forging programs that made words like mesomorphs, triglycerides and gly-cemic index easy to understand. She later broadened her studies to include a certificate in counseling from Yale

University and the Cooper Institute to focus on weight management and lifestyle change. Since then shes created TRANSFORMATIONS, a series of successful evidence-based weight management programs. These programs focus on reversing metabolic syndrome, the life-challenging precursor to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is increasingly more common in children and teens. Eighty-five percent of children with type 2 diabetes are overweightprimarily because they do not get enough physical activity to support a lifestyle that includes drink-ing large amounts of sodas, skipping meals, eating larger portions, and eating out more often. Early signs of perio-dontal disease have been found in nearly 60% of diabetic children in the 6-11 year-old group. That is twice the per-centage found in non-diabetic children in the same age range. In the 12-18 year-old group, nearly 80% of patients with diabetes had early periodontal changes. This course will be of interest to all members of the dental office team and their spouses! As usual, a continen-tal breakfast, two breaks with snacks and liquid refresh-ments, and a fabulous lunch are included in the tuition. Tuition: $275 Dentist $135 Team members accompanied by the dentist $175 Team members not accompanied by the dentist Registration or additional information for both of these excellent courses can be obtained by calling the UNC School of Dentistrys Office of Continuing Educa-tion at (919)966-2729, or on-line at www.dent.unc.edu/ce.ced.

This spring was a period of exciting growth for our Baby Oral Health Program, (bOHP). We continue to im-prove upon students experiences by adding a bOHP rota-tion for senior dental students this summer at Lincoln Health Community Center in Durham. This is our primary rotation site because we have developed a highly collabo-rative relationship with the pediatricians in providing pre-ventive oral health services for infants and toddlers. Equally exciting has been the dissemination of the bOHP kits. In April, we launched this how to concept through an announcement in the ADA News and through a special website at www.bohp.unc.edu . The site provides information on our mission, the bOHP kit and how to obtain it. With generous support from the NC Academy of Pediatric Dentists, NC Academy of General Dentists, the NC Dental Society and the National Childrens Oral

Health Foundation, all UNC- DDS graduates and pediatric dental residents in the Class of 2008 received a compli-mentary bOHP kit. The students and faculty are very grateful for these gifts. As we transition into the fall, we look forward to our CE on October 3rd at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill on Incorporating an Infant and Early Childhood Dental Program into Your Practice: Why? Who? and How? We anticipate a great turnout and ask that you share this information and the bOHP concept with your dental col-leagues and friends. We also ask that you consider em-bracing the concept in your practices because your support and assistance in helping move this project forward will be critical to its long term success and improving the oral health of children.

PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY LABORATORIES MOVE TO RTP May 2008 hallmarked a notable change for pediatric dentistry researchers at UNC-CH. In order to make way for a new Dental Sciences Building, the Dental Research Center and adjacent Dental Office Building were decom-missioned. Pediatric dentistry faculty, Eric Everett, Yuki Mochida, Maria Wang (2005) and Tim Wright, relocated their research laboratories and offices from the Dental Research Center to the North Carolina Oral Health Insti-tute established in Research Triangle Park (RTP).

It is anticipated that the pediatric dentistry researchers will return to campus in approximately 40 months to oc-cupy new laboratory space in the Dental Sciences Build-ing. The RTP facility offers state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and an increase in space for the researchers. An open laboratory design will facilitate communication and collaboration between the researchers and will lead to an improved pediatric dentistry research program.

North Carolina Oral Health Institute established in Research Triangle Park (RTP)This facil-ity is located near the intersec-tion of I-40 and Durham Free-way (NC 147).

The open laboratory design features state-of-the-art facili-ties. This configuration fosters communication, collaboration and enhanced research.

The Department of Pediatric Dentistry was awarded the AAPD/Omni Postdoctoral Research Award for the tenth consecutive year. Current second year resident, Stephanie Blumenshine (2010) is the most recent recipi-ent of this award. Her project is titled The Impact of Poor Oral Health on School Performance in North Caro-lina Children. This project just published in the Journal of Public Health Dentistry builds on her previous work as a dental student. Her primary mentor for both projects is Bill Vann (1976). Other investigators included Jessica Lee (2002), Jonathan Kotch from the Department of Ma-ternal and Child Health and Bhavna Pahel from the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research.

Stephanies findings will have major public policy im-plications for the oral health of U.S. children. They will send a strong message to policy makers who set legislative pri-orities for organizations (e.g. Title VII, HRSA, NIDCR, MCH) that impact support for specialty training in pediat-ric dentistry and to dental school deans and hospital ad-ministrators who set funding priorities for pediatric den-tistry in their institutions. The findings will also have the potential to impact state and local school officials who set school attendance guidelines. Additionally, the findings have potential to elevate the publics perception of the importance of childrens oral health at every level na-tional, state, and local communities.

Since the inception of the Omni awards program in 1999, UNC has received 11 awards in the 10 year time period. The OMNI Pediatric Dentistry Postdoctoral Re-search Fellowship Program (OMNI Fellowship) was es-tablished for the purpose of promoting and supporting prospective research by postdoctoral students and resi-dents in pediatric dentistry. The OMNI Fellowships are possible through the generous support of OMNI Oral Pharmaceuticals. Up to three (3) pediatric dentistry post-doctoral students/residents are selected each year to re-ceive a yearlong research fellowship. The Healthy Smiles, Healthy Children Committee on Scientific Affairs selects the recipients on a competitive basis from eligible

submissions. Previous winners include: Rocio Quinonez (2000), mentor Mar-tha Ann Keels (1990); Jessica Lee (2002), mentor Bill Vann (1976); Kate Pierce (2002),

mentor Bill Vann (1976) and Gary Rozier; Matt Savage (2004), mentor Jessica Lee (2002); Marianne Sheroan (2003), mentor Diane Dilley; Michael Rossitch (2004), mentor Rocio Quinonez (2000); Elizabeth Shick (2005), mentor Jessica Lee (2002); Halley White (2006), mentor Jessica Lee (2002); Julia Molina (2008), mentor Bill Vann (1976); Ray Tseng (3rd year resident), mentor Tim Wright; and Stephanie Blumenshine (2nd year resident), mentor Bill Vann (1976).

The Grip-it and Rip-It golf event will happen this year on Saturday, October 4. This past year was a bummer for the event. Unfortunately com-plicated schedules and assorted other problems led to suspension of the event last fall. This was certainly a sad situation for pediatric dentistry in North Carolina. We hope this years event will make us forget about the sadness of the past. This year we are expecting to improve the purse (we are negotiating with some potential sponsors) and we are looking toward a large turnout of those seeking the honor of being called a Champion of the Grip-it and Rip-It. A partial listing of previous champions illustrates just how prestigious this event has become.

Some of the Previous Champions Mark Meyer, John Christensen, Evan Long, Dennis Clements

Tom Bouwens, Bryan Cobb, Ron Venezie, Tom McIver Alan Babigan, Scott Goodman, Gary Dilley, Lorne Koroluk

Bring yourself, co-worker, office staff, friends, significant other or pet to participate in this fun event. A Captains Choice format is used that allows golfers at all levels to enjoy playing a competitive round. See you there!

Your gifts to the UNC-CH Department of Pediatric Dentistrys development funds are acknowledged below and include only those received and credited by the Dental Foundation of North Carolina in the calendar year of 2007. We express our most sincere thank you for your continued generosity. Your gifts support our residents training, improve our graduate student library, acquire new technology and provide additional opportunities to enrich the resi-dents educational experience. State and university support continues to dwindle and loss of the MCH grant has made your support ever more critical. Gifts received are invested and the interest from the funds is used to meet our graduate program needs described throughout this Newsletter. Your commitment to improve the program is not lost on our residents, and it continues to cement the bonds among our past, present and future alumni and friends.
