From the 1950s to the present, our residency program has graduated more than 160 practicing oral and maxillofacial surgeons all over Virginia and the nation. Many of these clinicians went on to become prominent teachers, researchers and leaders of the specialty at the local, regional and national levels.

The department is proud of their graduates and keeps close contact with the alumni through regularly scheduled events, through informal contacts and the department newsletter.

The annual events include alumni gathering at the AAOMS Annual Meeting, The Elmer Bear Annual CE Lecture and Reception, and the Graduation Day CE and Dinner.
