Jamie Moret & Dr. Dillenberg

ATSU President Jack Magruder has announced the naming of the Jack and Jamie Learning Center at its Center for Advanced Oral Health Education. Jack Dillenberg, DDS, MPH, inaugural dean of ATSU’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH), donated $50,000 to the creation of the multi-use facility that will serve as a classroom, a continuing education center, and a community hub.

“I am very grateful for Dr. Dillenberg’s generosity. This philanthropic gift shows the passion within each of us to educate students who are caring and compassionate,” Dr. Magruder said. The naming of the Jack and Jamie Learning Center was announced at an employee recognition event at ATSU’s Arizona campus today.

The 3,400-square-foot Jack and Jamie Learning Center honors Dr. Dillenberg and educator Jamie Moret. It is the latest addition to the 22,000-square-foot Center for Advanced Oral Health Education, located at ASDOH.

“I am humbled by the opportunity to be part of this great University and filled with pride and joy at ASDOH’s success. This gift is for our students who are our best ambassadors and is a tribute to their achievements,” said Dr. Dillenberg, marking his 10 years of service to ASDOH.

The Center’s first phase is currently in operation with a 22-chair orthodontic clinic and will soon be home to an Advanced Care Clinic that will provide care for individuals with complicated oral health needs. Learn more about The Center for Advanced Oral Health at www.atsu.edu/asdoh/caohe.
