The American Prosthodontic Society (APS) Foundation has made a gift to support a University of Maryland School of Dentistry (UMSOD) student study group. Dennis Stiles, DDS, president of the foundation, presented a $500 gift to the Prosthodontic Interest Group on Friday, Nov. 15. The Prosthodontic Interest Group will use the money to fund lunch-and-learn seminars.

"The American Prosthodontic Society is excited about the kind of learning that goes on in study clubs like the Prosthodontic Interest Group. What really inspires me is that we have predoctoral students already showing a great interest in this discipline," remarks Dr. Stiles, who is a member of the Dean's Faculty.

The Prosthodontic Interest Group was established in 2012. The group, which has about 40 members, meets for monthly lunch-and-learn seminars. During the seminars, invited speakers give presentations about trends and innovations in the field of prosthodontics. The casual seminars are important because many students feel more comfortable asking questions in small group settings, says Nathaniel Dancykier, DDS '15, president of the Prosthodontic Interest Group.

Dancykier is grateful for the gift from the APS. "This donation will help us keep our group viable. We can continue to give students a broader understanding of what the prosthodontics specialty has to offer," states Dancykier.
