    Largest donation in College history


    $3.6 Million PPE Donation to ICD from Henry Schein Cares 




    The International College of Dentists' (ICD) Global Visionary Fund received $3.6 million worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) from Henry Schein Cares, the global corporate social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc. The College is facilitating the disbursement of PPE to charitable projects and humanitarian missions around the world. The gloves, face shields, hand sanitizers, isolation gowns, thermometers and coveralls are essential materials that will allow oral health care to be safely delivered to underserved and struggling individuals and communities.


    This is the largest donation ICD has ever received and the latest development in the decade-long, enduring relationship between the ICD and Henry Schein, Inc. "This donation reflects our continued sense of purpose and commitment to values that make the world a better place," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Henry Schein, Inc.


    International ICD President Dr. Akira Senda noted, "We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Henry Schein for this magnificent contribution whose impact will be felt not only today but for years to come. I also want to acknowledge the outstanding Fellows of the ICD team who were responsible for the realization of this amazing initiative; Secretary General Dr. Joe Kenneally, Director of Communications and College Editor Dr. Dov Sydney, Director of Development Dr. Phillip Dowell, and Director of Operations Chelsea Segren."


    The ICD Global Visionary Fund (GVF) supports humanitarian and educational oral health projects globally through grants, in-kind donations and volunteer connection. This collaborative PPE initiative with Henry Schein not only extends the support of the GVF, but also continues to strengthen the College's core values of humanitarianism and international relations.

    Cynthia Dawson is a UBC 4th Year student who received our ICD Student Award.  She is a very worthy choice.

    I am in fourth year at UBC and am honoured to have been selected for the International College of Dentists Award this year. I grew up in Burnaby BC and completed my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Psychology at UBC where I received the award for the top graduate in Biochemistry. 

    During my time at UBC Dentistry I have been fortunate to be involved in many great events. I especially enjoyed co-chairing Sharing Smiles, a free, fun-filled, informative day shared between individuals in the special needs community and dentistry/dental hygiene students where positive relationships can be fostered and barriers removed. I am also a student mentor team leader. Our student mentor team provides support and mentorship to second and third year DMD students at evening practice to help them through their intensive simulation training. I also volunteer as a music therapy assistant at Yaletown House, a complex care facility. I love watching residents come alive with the music and helping to facilitate those connections. 

    I am not sure where I would like to practice, although I would like to live in a smaller community in BC (especially if there’s good hiking on my days off). I am looking forward to finding a family practice where I can serve a community. 

    Wishing you all the best for 2021! 

    Kind regards,

    Ed O'Brien related the following good news.  Congratulations, Ed!!

    I was “promoted" by UBC to Clinical Assistant Professor from Lecturer. I was elected Vice -president of the Canadian section of the International College of Dentists and UBC just informed me I will be receiving an Alumni Builders Award. UBC sent their photographer, Paul Joseph, yesterday to take pictures. Paul took pictures of me in business attire and then in my ICD kilt (see Read more below).

    KILT??? A dentist in Alberta, Carol Martin,  designed and registered our tartan for the ICD Canada section and I have the only kilt made of it so far.

    On Sunday, November 15, 2020, Wesley J. Dunn, DDS, FACD, FRCD(C) (Hon.), FICD (Hon.), FADI (Hon), LL.D. departed this life following a brief illness. He died at his residence at age 96.

    For more than sixty-two years Wes was the cherished husband of Jean who passed on in 2011. Wes and Jean built a wonderful life together, first in Toronto and then in London. Wes and Jean had three sons. Bruce (Marion Holgate) passed on in October 2020. Wes was extremely touched by the many tributes from Bruces students and others whose lives were made better by him. Wes is survived by sons Steven (Johanne Saucier) of Gatineau, Quebec; and Brian (Kathy Dunn) of London; grandchildren Geneviève Dunn (Arnaud Tremblay) and Jean-Michel Dunn of Gatineau; Sarah Dunn (Phill Maas) of Kamloops, B.C.; and Michael Dunn (Jessica Barré-Dunn) of London; baby great-grandson Théodore Wesley Tremblay, also of Gatineau; and special friend Helen St. Cyr. Wes is the son of the late John J. and Grace E. (Bryan) Dunn. The day before his death Wes spent time outdoors with his family laughing and reminiscing. He was adored by his family.

    Wes was the founding Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry of The University of Western Ontario. He was a past Registrar and past President of the provinces dental professions governing body, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario. He was a past Editor of Oral Health and the Journal of the Canadian Dental Association. Honorarymemberships were conferred on him by the Canadian Dental Association, the Ontario Dental Association and the Toronto Academy of Dentistry. He was a member of and served a term as Chair of the then Thames Valley District Health Council and later was a member of the Board of Directors of the London Health Sciences Centre and the Board of Directors of the Childrens Health Foundation.

    In June 2009, The University of Western Ontario conferred on him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws.

    Fellow Dunn leaves a massive legacy to the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Dentistry (now the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry) as it's Founding Dean and guiding light in it's early years.  He was much loved by his students and he made an effort to keep in touch with them over the years.  Many of us can remember receiving a note from Wes congratulating us on an achievement or recognition and it was always written in his beautiful and flowing prose.  Few  people today can write as elegantly as Dr. Dunn did.

    As noted above, he served the profession with distinction at many levels and Dentistry as a profession has richly benefited from his service.   Even in his retirement, he held a passionate interest in the well being of the profession.   He will be deeply missed.

    Past President Jack McLister of London, Ontario has died and the information below is taken from the Obituary published in the London Free Press.  Jack not only served as President of ICD Section 2 (Canada) but also as an International Councilor representing Canada at the College at Large.  His contributions to ICD and our Section were extensive and he is deeply missed.

    Throughout his career, Jack remained active at his alma mater serving for many years on the executive of the UWO Dental Alumni Society. He was presented with the Alumnus of Distinction Award from Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry in 2002. Jack continued to teach at the Dental school where he had been part-time Adjunct Clinical Professor for nearly 40 years, since the day after his graduation. In 2008, his exceptional commitment to Western University was recognized with the John C. McLister Service Award granted to a fourth-year graduate from the Dental school "who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to the profession and peers through participation in organized dentistry". The award is a symbol of what he was all about - dedication to organized dentistry. Jack's involvement with organized dentistry began with the London & District Dental Society in 1975, where he served twice as President and then as an active member through to 2011 when he became an Honorary Member. He received the LDDS Dr. Robert A. Brandon Service Award for his contribution to the profession. Jack served on the executive board of the Ontario Dental Association for many years and became President of the ODA in 2016-17 during its 150th anniversary. Jack's official ODA biography includes a long list of committees and task forces and he was honoured with the ODA Service Award. In 2019, he received the Barnabus W. Day award for distinguished service by the ODA, one of the most prestigious awards in organized dentistry. Outside of the ODA, Jack was President and an International Councilor of the International College of Dentists (Canada) and Chair of the American College of Dentists (Ontario). He was also an Examiner for the National Dental Examining Board of Canada and a founding member of the Thames Valley Dental Study Club (1977) serving three separate terms as its President. He was a Fellow of the Pierre Fauchard Academy, the American College of Dentists and the International College of Dentists.
