1. Faculty and Staff: Return to Campus Update

As the campus opens back up, we want to reiterate the expectations of where our employees will work. The UTHSC administration is allowing each supervisor and/or department head to determine whether their employees:

  • Return to full-time, in-office work on campus (or another designated location)
  • Maintain a hybrid schedule (combination of working some days on campus + some days remote)
  • Continue to fully work remote

Since the return to in-office work may look different in each department, we are relying on our supervisors to provide guidance and proper protocols to ensure day-to-day workplace practices that keep us all safe and productive. Remember – any person who has not been fully vaccinated must wear a mask on the UTHSC campus.

Employees should direct questions regarding work schedules to their immediate supervisor. Supervisors, if you have any questions or concerns regarding work schedules, please contact Human Resources at or 901.448.5600.

2. College of Dentistry to Open New Clinic

The Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Clinic on the 3rd floor of the Dunn Dental Building at 875 Union Avenue, Suite C302, will be staffed by dental residents, degreed and licensed dentists, who have chosen to receive advanced clinical training in a one-year residency program.

The dental residents, with support and supervision from faculty of the Department of General Dentistry, will offer comprehensive dental care for adults in the state-of-the-art, five-chair AEGD dental clinic that simulates a private-practice setting, without the cost

All treatment will be supervised by dentists with decades of experience. “The AEGD patient will receive the best of both worlds—high quality and lower fees,” said Bard J. Levey, DDS, assistant professor in the Department of General Dentistry at UTHSC and site director for the AEGD-Memphis program. “Our focus is not on driving profit, rather our goal is the development of the adroit, technologically savvy, ethical, and evidence-based dentist. The result is a true win-win situation for the patients and our residents.”

The AEGD program will serve an important role in the college by helping to accommodate patients whose treatment needs exceed the ability of the undergraduate dental student. The College of Dentistry received approval in March from the Commission on Dental Accreditation to begin the Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program in Memphis. The college has a similar program site in Nashville.

Clinic hours will be 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. To become a patient, call the AEGD clinic at 901.448.AEGD (2343) to set up a screening appointment.
