I am pleased to share with you an exciting development from the Office of Advancement, Communications & Alumni Relations at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry. Effective today, you can read college news and updates on your alma mater's newly designed web publication, NewsStand.
This site was created with the TAMBCD community in mind. In one centralized news hub, NewsStand's content will include information that formerly was found in the Baylor Dental Record Online as well as news articles and features from the college's magazine, the Baylor Dental Journal, which remains in print format.
The Record Online has been the college's dependable source for web news for more than 10 years. While the BDRO as we've come to know it is going away, NewsStand will provide the same quality coverage with several distinct enhancements, including:
daily/weekly postings, so you receive frequent, up-to-date information
responsive design, so you can read college news articles on your computer, mobile device or tablet with ease
weekly emails and RSS feed subscriptions, so you can be the first to know when TAMBCD developments break
I hope you will enjoy using this new resource as much as I will. In the meantime, please direct any comments or questions to Jenny Fuentes in the Office of Advancement, Communications & Alumni Relations at 214.828.8358 or firstname.lastname@example.org. And don't forget to send story ideas and/or news to Jenny as well.

50 Years Later
The Class of 1963 returns to campus to get a firsthand look at what’s changed at TAMBCD. Has anything stayed the same?
Dr. George Richards organized the 50-year reunion and describes with fondness the belt-driven drill.
As a result, the 20 alumni of the Class of 1963 and spouses got to take an unhurried, in-depth tour of campus, seeing much of the dental school that has so changed over the years.
Dental Hygiene turns 100
What began a century ago as a fledgling class in southwestern Connecticut has since grown into a dynamic profession.
On Jan. 17, approximately 100 dental hygienists from across Dallas and the Southwest took pause to celebrate the profession during a reception at Omni Dallas Hotel’s West End Lounge.
The occasion coincided with the 2013 Southwest Dental Conference in Dallas so dental hygienists from across the country could attend. Registered Dental Hygienist emblem
Less than two weeks later, the celebration continued with a Jan. 28 reception for Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry students, faculty and staff, complete with cake and refreshments.
As dental hygiene celebrates 100 years in the U.S., here’s a closer look at how the profession got its start and blossomed into what it is today.
