A passion for oral health care, a commitment to outreach, and an organizer extraordinaire – DH2 student Mary Dionne is a worthy recipient of this year’s Faculty Leadership Impact Award. She received her award on March 21, 2019 at the 8th Annual Dal Student Impact Awards ceremony.

Mary wears many hats. She is president of her second-year dental hygiene class and student representative for the Canadian Dental Hygiene Association. She serves on many committees, writes articles, organizes guest speakers, and volunteers with HOPES and other outreach organizations. She also holds down a job.

Andrea Hare, an instructor in the School of Dental Hygiene, summed up Mary’s contributions in her letter of nomination: “Ms Dionne is exceptional in every way; her personal commitment to her patients, classmates, faculty and to the field of dental hygiene makes her a very well respected member of her class and an excellent representative of her faculty.”

Congratulations, Mary!
