- School of Dentistry Certificate of Appreciation (2013)
Lafayette, Indiana, periodontist Scott A. Reef, who holds a 1991 dental degree and 1996 master’s degree in periodontics from IU, received the Certificate of Appreciation. The Zionsville, Indiana, resident was the driving force behind the 2010 creation of the IU Periodontic Alumni Association. With funds Reef raised through the association, periodontic students have received stipends to help cover expenses to national meetings in their specialty.
A part-time IU professor since 1996, he served on the fundraising committee that made possible a total renovation of the dental school’s Graduate Periodontics Clinic using only donated funds. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology.
