Professional Development and Faculty Affairs

The Office of Professional Development and Faculty Affairs at The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston was established to provide leadership, advocacy, support and assistance to administration and faculty in improving the quality of teaching and learning. Additionally, the office focuses on developing or enhancing leadership skills, communication, faculty development, research, academic skills, cultural diversity and interdisciplinary activities.

These goals are accomplished through a spirit of collaboration with all involved, while supporting the overall mission and goals of the School of Dentistry in pursuit of excellence of teaching and learning, education, research, patient care and institutional development.
