Buffalo, N.Y.—JADA Editor Michael Glick has received the highest academic award presented by the American Academy of Oral Medicine.
Dr. Glick: Recipient of the Samuel Charles Miller Award.
At AAOM’s 66th annual meeting in April, Dr. Glick, professor of oral medicine and dean, School of Dental Medicine, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, received the Samuel Charles Miller Award “in recognition of his outstanding academic and clinical achievements, specifically his pioneering work with managing the dental care of patients with human immunodeficiency/AIDS or other medically complex conditions,” said AAOM President Dr. Martin S. Greenberg, professor and associate dean of hospital affairs, School of Dental Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.
“Looking at previous recipients and knowing that this award is one decided upon by one’s peers, I was both humbled and honored to be a recipient of the Samuel Charles Miller Award,” Dr. Glick said. “But this type of award is also recognition of all the great people I have had the pleasure of collaborating with during my career.”
Dr. Glick is a proponent for dentists becoming involved in the overall health and well-being of their patients, including chairside screening of patients for cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses, such as HIV disease and diabetes.
Dr. Greenberg praised Dr. Glick for his “outstanding” research and publications regarding the management of oral care of patients with complex medical conditions.
“He has been an important role model for dentists and dental specialists and has guided his students and residents into careers in oral medicine and academic dentistry,” said Dr. Greenberg. “Dr. Glick highly deserves this honor.”
