March 27, 2017

Dorothy Perry

Dorothy 'Dabby' Perry, PhD

Dorothy Perry, PhD, former associate dean for education and student affairs in the School of Dentistry, is back on recall appointment to direct the school’s Continuing Dental Education program. 

Prior to her retirement in June 2016, Dr. Perry had overseen the program since 2005. During her tenure, the Continuing Dental Education program has grown by more than 30 percent, regularly attracting large audiences to all programs and serving our dental community.

The program aims to provide a service to the dental community, highlight UCSF faculty speakers and other respected dental experts, and provide continuing dental education credit to both faculty and community practitioners.

Offerings include 15 or more single-day Saturday programs each year, and popular destination programs — two in Hawaii, one in Yosemite, and occasional cruises. Preceptorship programs and management of the Dental Alumni Association Annual Session CDE also are under the program’s auspices.

The CDE team includes Melissa Fung, program manager, and Leslie Chocano Solis, administrative assistant; contact them by emailing melissa.fung@ucsf.edu. Dr. Perry is available Thursdays for in-person meetings on campus.
