Rivera receives teaching award
Dr. Francisco Rivera-Hidalgo has received the 2008 American Academy of Periodontology Award for Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring in Periodontics. Rivera was presented the award at the college in July.
The award is given to one educator at each accredited dental school in the United States and Canada. Each school is asked to nominate a faculty member who demonstrates a commitment to excellence in providing clinical periodontics education and then relays that enthusiasm to students.
Rivera has been a faculty member at HSC-BCD since 1998. He currently serves as professor and director of research within the periodontics department.
