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.
The Faculty of Dentistry, on behalf of the School of Dental Hygiene and our combined alumni communities, wish to offer most sincere condolences to the many friends and family of Dr. Singer.

All MDHA members are welcome to attend!
Submissions are now being accepted for the Faculty of Dentistry / School of Dental Hygiene alumni quarterly report, Summer, 2013 Edition.
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 a dental hygiene student’s transition from student to practicing Dental Hygienist. As a mentor, you will have a lasting impact on your mentee’s educational experience, and future within the our profession of dental hygiene. Mentorship not only helps your mentee it provides you the mentor with a great environment to meet other dental hygienists and build new connections within the profession. Dental Hygiene students bring with them current knowledge of the profession, and you the mentor brings with your clinical experience of the real world. Mentor/mentee can learn from each other. Can you see how this truly can be a win/win situation for everyone involved!?
Your role as a mentor would include the following:
- A two year commitment (You would remain with your mentee for the duration of their 2 years at the School of Dental Hygiene)
- Attend Open Assembly/The White Coat Ceremony to share in the tradition of welcoming the students to our profession and presenting your mentees with their white coat.
- Attend an MDHA sponsored evening per term, total of 4 events throughout the 2 years.
- In first year, your mentee would observe you in practice twice.
- In second year, your mentee would observe you in practice once.
- Attend the MDA/Faculty of Dentistry Graduation Breakfast at graduation in late May.
- Be a consistent source of encouragement for your mentee and a resource if they have questions, concerns, or require support throughout their 2 year 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, health promotion, etc. Keep in mind, volunteering for the Mentorship Program is a great way also to tackle some criteria within the CDHM’s Continuing Competency Program, and you can have a fun time doing it!
The commitment is small, but the rewards are BIG!
Sound interested? Have questions? Contact us ASAP as the School of Dental Hygiene’s newest incoming class starts within the next month.
Excited to hear from you!
