His impressive career has included leadership roles at University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, Western University of Health Sciences College of Dental Medicine, and University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. His numerous honors and awards include election to the Pierre Fauchard Academy, as well as fellowships in the International College of Dentists and the American College of Dentists.

Our admissions process identifies and attracts talented students who truly have the passion to be the heart of our profession,” said Dr. Trombly. “Dean Dillenberg has assembled an incredible group of dedicated and compassionate individuals who will continue to be innovators in dental education. I am excited to see what we can achieve together in the coming years for our students, patients, and the profession.”
