JOEL BERG NAMED DEAN OF UWSoD

Dr. Joel Berg will become the next dean of the University of Washington School of Dentistry, UW Provost Ana Mari Cauce has announced. 
Dr. Berg, who had been Lloyd and Kay Chapman Chair for Oral Health at the School, heading the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, will assume his new post on Aug. 15, subject to approval by the UW Board of Regents.
He will succeed Tim DeRouen, who was appointed interim dean for the 2011-2012 academic year after the resignation of Martha Somerman. She had left the deanship after nine years to become director of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
Dr. Berg, nationally prominent as president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), furthered his reputation as director of the Center for Pediatric Dentistry, a partnership between the UW and Seattle Children’s hospital. The new facility at Seattle’s Magnuson Park, which he planned and brought to fruition with its opening in September 2010, has a mission of pediatric clinical care, dental and parent education, and research. Its major focus lies in early intervention, with an emphasis on dental visits by age 1.
