Mai-Ly Duong, DMD, MPH, ’12, alumna, associate professor, and associate director of special care dentistry at A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH), has been honored with two prestigious fellowships: the Pierre Fauchard Academy and the International College of Dentists.
Pierre Fauchard, who lived in France in the 18th century, is known as the father of modern dentistry. The academy established in his honor strives to recognize and build leaders in dentistry and elevate the dental profession. Dr. Duong was nominated for the fellowship because of her exceptional service to dentistry and the community.
The International College of Dentists is a leading international honor society for dentists. Fellowship is by invitation only, granted in recognition of a dentist’s “outstanding professional achievement, meritorious service, and dedication to the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind.”
“I am so humbled to be invited to join the Pierre Fauchard Academy and the International College of Dentists,” says Dr. Duong. “It is truly a great opportunity to be part of two long-standing and prestigious organizations that have a passion for serving the underserved and vulnerable populations at the international level. On the same lines, both organizations create a strong network for dentists around the world to learn about and from each other while we share ideas, build unity, and give back.”
