Former Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry dean dies

Jack W. Clinton, DMD, dean emeritus of Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry in Portland, Ore., died Jan. 3.

Dr. Clinton served as the dean of OHSU School of Dentistry from 2004-12, according to a Jan. 24 press release.

He also served as a consultant for the American Dental Association's Commission on Accreditation and created the Dental Careers Institute for those considering a career in dentistry.

"The School of Dentistry lost a leader, mentor, teacher and friend last week," said Ronald Sakaguchi, DDS, PhD, dean of the OHSU School of Dentistry. "Many of the programs available at the school today were initiated and built by Dean Clinton. He was a dedicated promoter of dentistry in the Pacific Northwest, a dynamic leader of the school, and a compassionate instructor and mentor. We will miss him greatly."
