On behalf of the UTHSC College of Dentistry Alumni Association, I want to invite you to join us for the 25th Year of the William F. Slagle Dental Meeting on March 5 – 8, 2020. We are excited about the events taking place over the weekend. The Alumni Association Board and the College of Dentistry staff have planned an outstanding meeting. We encourage you and your dental colleagues to attend and hear from nationally recognized speakers in the dental profession.

Over the weekend, the entire dental team – dentists, hygienists, and assistants – will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on courses designed to enhance their role at the dental office! In addition, we will have courses geared toward creating leaders in your practice, seeking work-life balance, restorative dentistry, dental implants, lasers in dentistry, medical emergencies, pharmacology, cannabis and the opportunity to re-certify in all the required annual and bi-annual courses needed for licensure.

If this is your reunion year, please contact your classmates and encourage them to join you at the meeting and a reunion dinner. Class Reunion years are 1980, 1990, 1995, 2000 and 2010. The Office of Alumni Affairs is available to help plan your reunion dinners with your classmates at a preferred location in Memphis.

We encourage all Slagle Meeting attendees to attend the Welcome Party on Friday Night themed, “It’s Time to Party Like a Rock Star!!" We are looking forward to seeing you dressed as your favorite rock star to celebrate the 25 years of the Slagle Dental Meeting! You are guaranteed to rock the night away! Light hors d’oeuvres will be served and The Dentones will be the featured band of the night, so let’s get ready to listen to some Rock n’ Roll and Party Like a Rock Star!!

I look forward to seeing you in Memphis and encourage all College of Dentistry Alumni to come back home and celebrate the 25th Annual William F. Slagle Dental Meeting!
