Reinventing Modern Dental Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Thanks to a $5 million contribution from Dr. Richard and Angela Workman, students at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry will continue to gain critical leadership qualities that will help them flourish in their careers as oral health professionals.

The Dr. and Mrs. Richard E. Workman Dental Leadership Endowment Fund was established with the Workmans’ gift. For students in the school’s Doctor of Dental Surgery, post-DDS, and dental hygiene programs, the fund will support innovative leadership courses, including Bell Leadership Institute courses and professional development initiatives.

“We know that honing leadership skills is foundational to positive patient outcomes and that dental teams deliver their best level of care when led by thoughtful and collaborative oral health professionals,” said Ed Swift, interim dean of the Adams School. “We are incredibly grateful for the investment in this professional development by the Workmans and the work that the Bell Leadership Institute team puts in to ensure our students graduate with strong leadership skills.”
