It is with great sadness that the Faculty of Dentistry notifies all that Dr. David Singer passed away peacefully on January 4, 2014, with his family at his side.

A long-serving academic and architect of several major initiatives here at the institution, Dr. Singer joined the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Manitoba, in 1992. He served as the Department Head, Department of Dental Diagnostic and Surgical Sciences (DDSS), from 1992 to 1999, and as the Associate Dean (Academic), Faculty of Dentistry, from 1999 to 2002. He was also the Director of the Graduate Periodontics Program from 1992-2006. In 2007, he was named Senior Scholar in DDSS.

Following his retirement in 2006, Dr. Singer continued his involvement with the Faculty as a Senior Scholar where he led in the development of several major projects including the creation of the Master of Science Program in Pediatric Dentistry, which was given provisional accreditation in November, 2011.

Dr. Singer earned a string of awards and honours throughout his career including outstanding service awards from the University of Manitoba, the Canadian Dental Association and the Canadian Academy of Periodontology. He would go on to earn fellowships in the Pierre Fouchard Academy and the International College of Dentists.

Prior to his appointment at the University of Manitoba, Dr. Singer served as the Director, Division of Periodontics (1984-1989) and the Associate Dean (Academic) from 1989 to 1992 at the College of Dentistry, University of Saskatchewan.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, January 8, 2014 at beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Shaaray Zedek Synagogue, 561 Wellington Crescent in Winnipeg.

MDHA Mentor Recruitment for the School of Dental Hygiene

Posted by on Jul 2, 2013 in Mentorship, School of Dental Hygiene, UMSDHAA | 0 comments

The MDHA would like to invite you to be a part of the MDHA/School of Dental Hygiene Mentorship Program. This program plays a vital role in the dental hygiene students transition from a student to a practicing dental hygienist.
As a mentor, you will have a lasting impact on your mentee’s educational experience, and the future of our profession. Mentorship not only helps guide your mentee, it provides you the mentor with a great environment to meet other dental hygienists and to build new connections within our profession.
The dental hygiene students bring with them current knowledge of our profession, and you the mentor brings clinical and employment experience of the real world. Both mentor and mentee can learn from each other. Can you see how this truly can be a win/win situation for all those involved!?
Your role as a mentor would include the following:
  1. A two year commitment (You will remain with your mentee for the duration of their 2 years at the School of Dental Hygiene)
  2. Attend the MDHA sponsored networking evenings. These occur once per term, which would total 4 evening events throughout the 2 years.
  3. In the first year, your mentee will observe you in practice twice.
  4. In the second year, your mentee would observe you in practice once.
  5. Attend the MDA/Faculty of Dentistry Graduation Breakfast within the graduation year of your mentee in late May.
  6. Be a consistent source of encouragement and a resource for your mentee if they have any questions, concerns, or require support throughout their 2 years of education.

We would love to have you as part of the Mentorship Program. We invite dental hygienists from all walks of the profession – newer grads (min. one year experience), established DH’s within specialty or general practices, or within health promotion.
Keep in mind, volunteering for the Mentorship Program is not only fun it is a great way to tackle some criteria within the CDHM’s Continuing Competency Program.
The commitment is small, but the rewards are BIG!
Sound interesting? Have questions? Contact us ASAP as the School of Dental Hygiene’s newest incoming class starts in mid-August.You can contact us at: mentorship@mdha.ca or call and leave a message for us at : 204-981-7327
Excited to hear from you!
