The Clayton State University Office of Alumni Relations and the Department of Dental Hygiene recently partnered to host a social for alumni and students at the 100th Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting.
More than 40 alumni, students, faculty and staff attended the social, which coincided with the annual dental conference at the World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta. The Clayton State event was sponsored by the Atlanta Dental Group and was held at Thrive Restaurant.
“A big thanks to our alums, students and faculty who attended the first Clayton State University Dental Hygiene reception,” says Dr. W. Gail Barnes, chair of the Clayton State Dental Hygiene Department. “I had so much fun getting caught up with alums and our all our friends that I was beginning to lose my voice. For our first attempt, it was great to see so many people in attendance.”
“We had a wonderful turnout for the social,” adds Gid Rowell, director of Alumni Relations. “This is the first time that we’ve had an event in conjunction with the Hinman Conference, and based on turnout and response from participants, it’s definitely a tradition we will continue. It was great to see our alumni reconnect and reminisce with the faculty members in attendance.”
In its 100th year, the Hinman Dental Meeting has a long-standing reputation of excellence, offering quality continuing education to attendees. The event is held in Atlanta each year.
