Ronnie Myers named interim dental school dean

We reported in March that Ira Lamster, who had been dean of the College of Dental Medicine since 2001, would step down at the end of the academic year. A little more than a month after commencement, University President Lee Bollinger has appointed Ronnie Myers, the school's vice dean for administrative affairs, as interim dean.

Bollinger and Lee Goldman, dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine, announced Myers' appointment in a University-wide email. According to their email, Myers has been a Columbia professor since 1982 and a dental school administrator since 1991, and he's also vice chair of the New York State Board of Dentistry. He received his dental doctorate at Columbia and trained here as a pediatric dentist.

See Bollinger and Goldman's full email after the jump.

Dear fellow members of the Columbia community:

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Ronnie Myers, DDS, as the interim dean of the College of Dental Medicine while a national search for a new dean proceeds.  As we wrote in March, Dr. Ira B. Lamster is stepping down as dean and senior vice president of the Columbia University Medical Center after leading the College of Dental Medicine for a decade.

Dr. Myers brings a wealth of academic, clinical and administrative experience, as well as a deep familiarity with the Columbia University Medical Center, to his new responsibilities.  He was appointed Assistant Dean for Clinical Affairs at the College of Dental Medicine in 1991 and was named Associate Dean in 2001.  He became Vice Dean for Administrative Affairs in 2011 and maintains an active practice in general dentistry.  Dr. Myers has been a consultant to the Commission on Dental Accreditation and is currently Vice Chair of the New York State Board of Dentistry.  He also is past chair of the American Dental Education Association Section on Clinic Administration.  Dr. Meyers frequently lectures on clinical infection control and the relationship between systemic disease and oral health.

Dr. Myers trained here as a pediatric dentist at the College of Dental Medicine, completed a fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and was in private practice before joining the full-time Columbia faculty in 1982 as director of the General Practice Residency Program at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.  While director, he initiated a screening program for pre-cardiac transplant patients and formed an affiliation with Memorial Sloan-Kettering to develop a two-year oncology program for dental residents.

We once again want to recognize and thank Dr. Lamster for his decade of exemplary leadership of the College of Dental Medicine, a period during which the school established many new research, clinical, and educational programs.  We look forward to his continued role as a member of the Columbia University Medical Center faculty.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Myers to his new position and thanking Dr. Lamster for his exceptional service to the University.

Sincerely,

Lee C. Bollinger
President
Columbia University

Lee Goldman, M.D.
Dean of the Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine
Executive Vice President for Health and Biomedical Sciences
Columbia University Medical Center

Congratulations, Ronnie-
It couldn't have been a better choice or a better guy. I'm sure Frank and Sully would agree with me. All the best in the future and, as I get closer to retiring, I'll try to help CUCDM as much as I can (we finally got the three kids through school). Again, congratulations and all the best to you and your family.

锘縃er mother, Sarah, told an inquest: 'I saw pictures she had posted on Tumblr of her cutting herself I recognised her bedsheets. I realised there were young girls on there cutting themselves to see who is worse. It's like the worst horror movie you have ever seen sitting in your house.'.

Summit had submitted an ambitious proposal to be the largest medical marijuana dispensary in the state. At his urging, the General Assembly passed legislation that limited the number of plants a dispensary could grow to 99 mature plants and 51 seedlings. They also can have a maximum of 1,500 ounces of marijuana ready for sale..

So, how do I stay connected? I usually stay in hostels and most of them have computers the guests can use for free. I haven't traveled much in Western Europe recently but free internet maybe not so widely available. Also there are less internet cafes these days than there use to be.

ALBERT EINSTEIN ONCE defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result. So we put our electric power lines up on a tall pole and a storm comes along and knocks it down. Then we put the lines back up on a tall pole and Christian Louboutin Red Bottom Booties New Shoes Flower Button Plum Red a storm comes ..

I've always had the cliched fantasy of having sex in Main Stacks, so we wasted no time in heading there first. The trick to doing it in Stacks is to go at a time when there won't be a lot of people studying at the same time and to pick a section of books that people won't ever think to look up. Like the British Royal Academy archives..

Tada e vas podvri mukama i ubijati vas, i sav svijet zamrzit e vas zbog mene. I mnogi e tada Christian Louboutin Shoes posrnuti u vjeri; izdavat e jedni Red Bottom Shoes druge i mrzit e se medjusobno. Ustat e mnogi lani proroci i mnoge e zavesti. Critics of that deal, which include major cable and television distributors like Cogeco Cable and Telus Corp. Argue a Bell Astral merger would create a behemoth that would dominate the broadcast and new media marketplace. Consumer watchdog groups like the Public Interest Christian Louboutin Outlet Advocacy Centre and Friends of Canadian Broadcasting have warned the deal would push prices up for subscribers, while limiting competition..

It's always the teachers. You know, the ones who actually work and earn their modest pay. I heard that the Millington Central High Principal has been transferred to Melrose, so he won't be looking for a "position" with the munis, but an awful lot of the former SCS teachers and administrators aren't being offered contracts it seems.
