Carrie Stetler | June 5, 2017

When Drs. Justin Stone and Robert Kroll opened their dental practice in 1961, they knew patients with disabilities had trouble finding dentists. Over the years, they built a thriving practice for special needs patients and established RSDM’s special care clinic. An endowed scholarship for RSDM students specializing in the field was named for them and awarded to its first recipient, Chelsea Rajagopalan.

The theme of this year’s 2017 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition was Beyond Boundaries — an invitation for attendees to think outside the box in search of better approaches to instruction, professional development and patient care. RSDM answered the call. Many faculty, staff and students presented at the event or won awards, making the exhibition held in March, one of the most successful for the school. Seven percent of the total accepted poster abstracts were from RSDM, which presented 12 posters and participated in other conference programs.

Catherine Deamus is an alum of Douglass College (Class of ’70), who grew up in New Brunswick, the daughter of a dentist who practiced in town. When she heard Rutgers was opening a dental practice on Somerset Street, she quickly booked an appointment. As she settled into the dentist’s chair at Rutgers Health University Dental Associates, Deamus said, “I feel like I’ve come home.” Area residents and members of the Rutgers community are invited to visit the practice’s new office on April 19, when it will be hosting an Open House from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
