Congratulations to Tamika Thompson-Sloan, D.D.S., clinical assistant professor, for receiving the award for Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring in Periodontics given by the American Academy of Periodontology. This award is presented to the periodontal educator at each institution who has demonstrated a commitment to excellence in providing education in the full scope of periodontics and relays that enthusiasm to students.
Anyone who has worked or spoken with Dr. Thompson-Sloan can attest that she is clearly deserving of this prestigious award. She is a dedicated clinician who practices the type of andragogy that should inspire all instructors. Her presence and influence is felt daily in both the clinic and academic programs. Her willingness to share with students and others typifies what is best about Detroit Mercy Dental faculty.
