The Department of Orthodontics hosted a celebration July 1 honoring Clinical Professor Fred A. Garrett, DDS, MSD, for 50 years in private orthodontic practice and more than 45 years teaching at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston.
Jim Reeves of American Orthodontics co-sponsored the surprise luncheon for Garrett, along with other faculty members and the orthodontic residents. Garrett's wife, Dianne, and his daughter, Kimberly, were also in attendance for the noon-time event.
The Orthodontic Class of 2013 arranged to have the U.S. flag at the Texas Capitol fly in Garrett’s honor on July 1. He will receive a certificate along with the flag.
