Julie M. Coe, D.D.S., M.S., M.B.A., assistant professor in the department of general practice, was one of four recipients of the Olav Alvares Award in March at the 2019 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Chicago. Dr. Coe was recognized for the article “Impact of Community-Based Clinical Training on Dental Students’ Confidence in Treating Pediatric Patients.”
Each year, to encourage predoctoral and allied dental early career faculty, students, residents and fellows to conduct publishable research and recognize those who have published outstanding work, the Journal of Dental Education (JDE) presents the “Olav Alvares Award for Early Career Scholars Who Published Outstanding Articles in the Journal of Dental Education.”
Dr. Olav Alvares served as JDE Editor from 2000–2009. During his time as editor, he was a strong advocate for the publication of articles by early career faculty and students. This mentoring of the next generation of dental educators and professionals led to the creation of the annual award in 2010.
