Impressions Fall 2011
Cornhusker Impressions
for alumni and friends of the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry
SimMan:
Big man on campus
He breathes and blinks. His chest rises
and falls. His pulse can be felt at his wrist,
neck, above his elbows, and in his feet. He
can even tell you how he feels. And he is
one of the most talked about new arrivals
at the UNMC College of Dentistry.
The SimMan® is a patient simulation
system manufactured by Laerdal Medical,
the same company that developed the
resuscitation-training manikin, Resusci
Anne. SimMan will be used to teach
general emergency response techniques
to dental and hygiene students and to
teach graduate students how to respond in
anesthesia-related emergencies.
“I appreciate the fact we are one of the
few dental schools in the country able to
do this, due to the generosity of our alumni
and friends,” said Dr. J. Bruce Bavitz, the
Merritt C. Pedersen Endowed Professor of
Dentistry. “This puts us on the cutting edge
of one area of dentistry. At the same time
we are trying to possibly save someone’s
life through the use of the best equipment
available.”
The SimMan, which cost $50,000, was
purchased in 2011 with private donations
to the College of Dentistry’s Development
Fund, Technology Fund, and other private

Margin of Excellence
Our fall issue of Cornhusker Impressions focuses on the generosity of our alumni
and friends. This issue contains some great examples of what private support does
to keep us strong: cutting-edge teaching equipment (SimMan), support for student
leadership activities, and collegiate renovations and furnishings (preclinic laboratories).
In addition, this issue recognizes the many people and organizations who have
contributed in the past year and those who have given at the Dean’s Club level.
We have just completed the final steps in renovating the clinical and preclinical
areas of the school, most of which had not received major upgrading since the
building was constructed in 1967. The newest improvements in our preclinic labs
are the last step in this phase of our current building upgrades. You can read more
about the preclinic labs in this issue. The clinic-related improvements actually
began in 2002 with the construction of the Henry and June Weeth Instrument
Management Center, so we have been “in progress” for a long time. Ten classes
of students have graduated since the first of these renovations began.

Now that we have completed the physical improvements, we are focusing on even
greater support for people and programs. Our educational programs, research
activities, and service outcomes continue to remain very strong, but the basis for
that excellence is the people behind these programs – our faculty and students.
Susan Norby, NU Foundation Director of Development, has written an article in this
issue that describes our goals and progress as part of the Campaign for Nebraska:
Unlimited Opportunities. I hope as you read that article, you will think hard about the
progress we have made, and consider what is yet to be done. If you haven’t already
contributed or pledged during the campaign, I hope you will think about that now.
With three new dental schools opening in the United States this fall and more than
300 vacant full-time faculty positions among U.S. dental schools, the challenge of
attracting and retaining the best and brightest faculty and students is becoming
more difficult. However, thanks to the generosity of so many of you, as well
as others who preceded you, the college has achieved remarkable success. As
always, we are proud of our progress but not satisfied with our successes. And
we strive to not only maintain but to improve the quality of everything we do.
Your loyal contributions are the key to helping us continue to attract and keep the
best faculty and students who make our programs outstanding. Thank you for your
steadfast support. If you have not contributed to the college, I encourage you to join
us. The margin of excellence would not be possible without your significant gifts.

“Depending on what
the student does,
SimMan could get
better or not. There
are different ways the
scenario could unfold.”
Dr. Bruce Bavitz
Merritt C. Pedersen Endowed Professor of Dentisty
SimMan continued from cover
funds. He is housed in a private room in
the North Clinic. A contest to name the
SimMan will be announced in August.
Bavitz said the SimMan will be used by
dental and hygiene students to practice
for medical emergencies that can happen
anywhere but particularly in a dental office
where the incidence may be slightly higher
than in a homelike setting because of
patient anxiety. Among those emergencies
are fainting, heart attacks, strokes, and
diabetic reactions.
“Most dentists will encounter one lifethreatening emergency and several minor
ones in the lifetime of his or her practice,”
Bavitz said. The incidence is slightly higher
for dental specialists who administer
deep sedation. While life-threatening
emergencies may not happen often, he
said the college is committed to preparing
students to respond promptly and
effectively when they do occur.
“Most of us, fortunately, will never have to
face the scenario,” Bavitz said.
Medical scenarios, based on a wide range
of vital signs, clinical signs, and symptoms,
can be pre-programmed into the SimMan’s
computer software system, and students’
responses can be observed, recorded, and
assessed. Typical comments like, “I feel
faint,” “I don’t feel very good,” and “I’m
better,” also can be pre-programmed. For
example, as the SimMan tells students that
he is feeling light headed and he thinks he
may faint, his blood pressure and heart rate
begin to drop.
The patient outcome depends on the
student’s response, Bavitz said. “Depending
on what the student does, SimMan could
get better or not. There are different ways
the scenario could unfold.” Students can use
a defibrillator, apply chest compressions,
administer shock, or perform mouth-tomouth resuscitation on SimMan. They can
also administer medications and start IVs.
Use of the SimMan will be incorporated
into the existing medical emergency course
taught by Dr. Darrell Ebke. “This adds a
dimension of sophistication and realism
we never had before,” Bavitz said. Laerdal,
the manufacturer, said Resusci Anne was
developed with just that thought in mind.
The founder was convinced students would
be more motivated to learn if the manikin
were life-sized and life-like.
SimMan also will be used to prepare
dental specialists, mainly oral surgeons,
periodontists, and pediatric dentists,
who deliver advanced anesthesia, which
presents the possibility of additional

complications. With SimMan, instructors
can simulate a person who has stopped
breathing while under anesthesia. The
student can respond by administering an
effective antidote or breathe for the patient.
The college expects to introduce the
SimMan to a general medical emergency
course for continuing education credit for
dental practitioners in 2012, Bavitz said.
The SimMan is full size at 5-feet-9. He
weighs 88 pounds and is made of durable
plastic, rubber, and mini computer
components. An accompanying laptop
is the command center, and a monitor
displays his vital signs. While the SimMan
has a male hairstyle and physique, snap-on
parts can give it male or female features.
With that in mind, Bavitz suggested a
gender-neutral name might be appropriate.

Student leaders from the
UNMC College of Dentistry
are, from left, Britt Marsh,
Jack Huebner, Kyle Beulke,
and Ryan Hajek.
Nebraska dental students
step forward to lead two
national student associations
Jack Huebner is an analytical thinker who carefully chooses his words. Ryan Hajek, class
president for four years, can bring a diverse group to consensus and quickly win over his
peers. Britt Marsh “encourages the heart” with his outgoing personality and uplifting
attitude. And Kyle Beulke?
“Well, if I asked him to move rocks for five hours after school, I don’t think he would
say no,” said Hajek. “Kyle is a giving and caring person, which is what you would like in
a leader.”
The four UNMC College of Dentistry students are all leaders, filling significant leadership
roles in national dental student organizations in 2011-2012. Dean John Reinhardt said it
is rare for the college to have so many students serving at the same time or succeeding
each other in these important national leadership positions.
Cornhusker Impressions | 6
The students say their service is a direct reflection of the positive environment at the
college and the support they receive from faculty and administrators, many of whom set
an example by being involved in dental organizations themselves, despite busy schedules
of teaching, research, and patient care.
“Nebraska should be proud,” said Hajek, a fourth-year dental student from Huron, SD,
and chair of the Council of Students, Residents, and Fellows of the American Dental
Education Association (ADEA). “It’s not just support from the faculty, it’s encouragement.
When we return from meetings, the faculty always want to know what happened, what’s
going on. This says a lot about the school and what we represent.”
Being involved in leadership roles, the students said, has given them the opportunity to
travel, to meet and network with fellow students from across the country, to sit down and
talk to faculty members and administrators from other colleges, to bring back new ideas
to Nebraska and to share some of the College of Dentistry’s unique programs with other
schools.
“We all appreciate the camaraderie with students from other schools,” said Marsh, a
second-year student from Torrington, WY, who is a regional liaison for the ADEA Council
of Students, Residents, and Fellows.
Their experiences also have helped them develop communication, leadership, and time
management skills and have provided a welcome balance to a demanding academic
schedule. “You have to do the best you can with what you have,” said Huebner, a fourthyear student from Hershey, NE.
His work with the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) gave him the opportunity
to observe the inner workings of a large, well-run organization. “I like to know how things
work,” explained Huebner, who will represent ASDA’s District 8 at the American Dental
Association House of Delegates meeting this fall in Las Vegas.
The students said their experiences also have set the course for involvement in their
communities and professions after graduation. “We are the dentists of tomorrow,” Hajek
said, following in the footsteps of his father, Dr. Tom Hajek, a 1976 College of Dentistry
graduate and past president of the South Dakota Dental Association.
The students have given up lazy Saturday mornings and have spent time after class with
conference calls and emails while their classmates head home, but they said the rewards
have been worth the effort. “You have to make a few sacrifices; that’s a part of taking a
leadership role,” said Beulke, a third-year student from Omaha who is District 8 trustee
for the American Student Dental Association. He succeeded Huebner in the position, a
first for the college, according to Dean Reinhardt.
“I can’t say no,” explained Beulke when asked why he agreed to take on the ASDA
position. “I can further my knowledge of dentistry and what goes on in the dental world.
And I see the value of networking.” Student involvement isn’t new for Beulke. He was a
tour guide and president of his fraternity at Rockhurst University.
“I like to be involved to not just keep me busy, but to keep me sane,” said Marsh, who
was a captain and president of the club baseball team at the University of Wyoming. “I
like to be a voice for those around me.” In his first year in dental school, he spent all day,
every day studying or in class. Being involved in organizations has allowed him “to get
out and see what else is going on.” His involvement also has introduced him to aspects
of dentistry that may not be experienced in the classroom, but that will be useful in his
future dental practice.
Serious agendas
to come before the
ASDA, ADEA
Of all the business that is now before the
two major U.S. student dental associations,
five important issues came to the top of
the list, according to leaders from the
UNMC College of Dentistry.
Two College of Dentistry dental students
– Jack Huebner and Kyle Beulke – play
leadership roles in the American Student
Dental Association. And dental students
Ryan Hajek and Britt Marsh are involved
with the American Dental Education
Association.
Private giving to the college enables
student leaders to attend meetings of
these two groups and other major student
organizations. The four student leaders
identified the following issues as most
pressing:
•Incorporating social media into
dental education. How do you do it,
will it work, how can it be incorporated
into dental education without being
distracting?
•Maintaining the autonomy of
dentistry so dentists can run their
practices as they see best without being
overregulated.
•Examining how mid-level providers,
such as dental therapists, are
educated and how they fit into the
scope of practice.
•Attracting and retaining dental
school faculty, especially given tight
state budgets and the financial appeal
of private practice.
•Assessing the impact of new pass/
fail scoring system for Parts I and II of
the National Board exams on admission
policies for advanced programs.

Remodeled preclinic labs offer
clean air, convenient computer
monitors, ‘psychological boost’
In their first hour or so of dental school,
first-year students at the UNMC College
of Dentistry learn to assemble high- and
low-speed handpieces and start using the
handpieces to cut a block of plastic as if they
were preparing a tooth for a restoration.
a bright, healthy environment that is
conducive to student learning and convenient
for students, faculty, and staff. Also, he
said, the fresh colors and furnishings
contribute to the “psychological boost
you get out of having something new.”
“It gives them a sense of being in dental
school,” said Dr. Bill Johnson, associate
professor who co-teaches the 8 a.m. Dental
Materials and Techniques class with Dr.
Mark Beatty.
The new labs, designed to accommodate
50 students each, feature a bench-top
evacuation system that removes dust and
other particulate matter from the air, as
well as conveniently placed computer
monitors, enabling students to view
instructors’ PowerPoint presentations
and video demonstrations up close. One
monitor is provided for every two students
at the custom-designed workstations.
After an introductory lecture, “they have
their handpieces in their hands by 9:30,”
Johnson said, adding that the College of
Dentistry is one of a very few schools in the
United States that introduces handpieces in

class will be learning how to use handpieces
and other dental instruments in a newly
remodeled and furnished preclinic laboratory
on the college’s ground floor. Second-year
students will be working in a second newly
remodeled preclinic laboratory next door.
Dr. Larry Haisch, project coordinator,
said the remodeled preclinic labs provide
Katherine Bush of Kearney, a third-year
dental student, especially appreciates the
computer monitors at the workstations. In
the old labs, presentations were projected
on three large screens at the front of each
classroom. Students in the front row had
to turn around in their seats to view the
screens, and students in the back row had
difficulty seeing the fine detail, she said.
Rhonda Simpson, Instrument Management
Center supervisor, said students now will
stay in the same lab for the first two years
of dental school, easing the stress and
confusion of multiple moves. In the past,
first-year students started in one lab and
moved to the other lab the second year.
Dental aide Bonnie Johnson oversees
the daily operation and upkeep of the
labs and works with course directors,
preparing materials for students, educating
students on the value of materials and
equipment, and stressing to students
the importance of OSHA regulations.

techniques and how to use handpieces
and other instruments and various dental
materials. Johnson, who is vice chair of
the Department of Adult Restorative
Dentistry, and Beatty, professor and
section director of Dental Materials, have
been co-teaching the class for 12 years.
In a first-year curriculum dominated
by basic sciences, students “feel like
they are becoming a part of dentistry”
in the preclinic labs, Johnson said.
In Memory
Dr. Henry Cech, 86, Lincoln, died June 20, 2011. He
was a member of the Dental Class of 1956, and he received
his orthodontic degree in 1958. He was a past president of
the Nebraska Dental Alumni Association and the Lincoln
District Dental Association. Dr. Cech and his wife, Anne, and
other orthodontic alumni were instrumental in the funding
of a seminar room and library for the Department of Growth
and Development in 2006.

she will split her time between her private
practice in Lincoln and the college.
Responsibilities: Her responsibilities
will be in the undergraduate periodontal
clinic and instrumentation lab, with time
also in the graduate periodontal clinic and
the ATP clinic. She will lecture in various
undergraduate and graduate classes.
Interests: “I enjoy working with the
undergraduate students because
everything is new to them, and they
are excited about simply being in clinic
with a patient. Often the undergraduate
periodontal clinic is where students see
their first ‘real’ patients, and it is exciting
(and busy) for everyone that very first day!
I enjoy getting to know the undergrads
and working with them as they learn
to treatment plan a difficult perio case.
They are usually amazed to see how well
their patients’ oral health can respond to
conventional non-surgical therapy. Plus, it’s
a pleasant place to work; we have fun in
that perio clinic.”
Attraction: “I have always been interested
in teaching, even when I was an undergrad
helping Dr. (Stan) Harn in anatomy
demonstrations for high school students.
Technically, I have never really left the
college since I have either been a student
or an instructor since 2002. Most of all,
I enjoy seeing many different people on
any given day. There is a great sense of
camaraderie in the periodontal section
especially, and I truly enjoy being a part
of it. Being around people like Jenny Harn,
RDH, and Dr. Rick Reinhardt is good for
me professionally and personally. Being in
such a strong department is challenging,
but hopefully, those challenges will make
me a better instructor.”
Spare Time: She and her husband, Dr.
Marty Killeen, also a College of Dentistry
graduate, have two sons, Peter, 4, and

Rural dentist consults via telehealth
with faculty, students about patient with
gunshot wound
A middle-aged patient who had sustained a gunshot wound to
the face more than a decade ago was the first case presented
June 25 in the UNMC College of Dentistry’s new Community
Grand Rounds.
David Brown, PhD, executive associate dean, said the patient
had not received proper care at the time of the injury and,
as a result, “had lost several teeth and most of the right
mandible.” Many of the remaining teeth were in jeopardy
because of decay and infection.
Dr. Susan Alexander (DDS, 2004), a UNMC staff dentist who
works at the Good Neighbor Community Health Center in
Columbus, presented the patient’s case from Columbus to
some 50 dental students and faculty members assembled in
Dixon Lecture Hall at the college.
The unusual case “was an eye opener for students,” Brown
said. “I don’t think they had seen anything like this. I’ve never
even seen a gunshot wound to the face.” The patient had lost
hearing in one ear and suffered with TMJ problems as a result
of the injury.
As part of the Community Grand Rounds protocol, Alexander
used photos, radiographs, and intraoral camera images to
seek expert opinions from the COD specialty faculty. In turn,
the faculty used the case to pose issues and ask questions
of the students regarding differential diagnoses, treatment
options, and prognosis. The exchange was transmitted from
Alexander’s clinic in Columbus to a data projector and
plasma display in Dixon Hall through the Nebraska Telehealth
Network.
Community Grand Rounds is an interactive videoconference
presentation of a patient’s oral health needs and a discussion
by a panel of COD experts regarding potential treatment
options. Brown said out-of-the-ordinary cases are chosen to
give students another learning opportunity. In this first case,
the specialists at the college praised Alexander for her high
quality work, he said.
The purpose of Grand Rounds is to introduce practitioners
and students to the opportunities and benefits of using
telehealth to serve the oral health needs of patients in rural
communities, Brown said. It also is intended to demonstrate
that practicing dentistry in a rural area does not mean
isolation from the dental community and dental specialty
support.
In Community Grand Rounds, case presentations originate
from rural dental offices and are transmitted to the College
of Dentistry in Lincoln and to UNMC in Omaha. The audience
consists primarily of third- and fourth-year dental students and
interested COD faculty.
Brown said the college anticipates hosting Grand Rounds
presentations four times a year, with the next one, and
possibly two, expected this fall. No dates have been set. One
of the next presenters is expected to be Dr. Jessica Meeske,
a pediatric dentist in Hastings and a mentor for the college’s
dental students, hygiene students, and graduate students.
Future Grand Rounds presentations will be available to
alumni and other interested health professionals via desktop
streaming and connection with other Nebraska Telehealth
Network sites, Brown said. Support for Community Grand
Rounds has come from an $8,000 grant from the State of
Nebraska Office of Rural Health.

unit from the 1930s
It’s just a few short steps from the newly
remodeled preclinic laboratories, where a
new evacuation system minimizes exposure
to dust and other particulate matter, to the
college’s Dental Museum, where more than
150 years of dental artifacts are displayed,
some in period settings.
Included in the displays is a 1930s Ritter
unit that houses almost everything a
dentist would need—a drill, water, lights.
Another artifact from the 1930s is a
mahogany dental cabinet with supplies of
the period including bottles of Listerine.
In a 1910 dental office, visitors will find a
wall-mounted dental drill that hangs from
a pulley.
Dr. Stan Harn, museum curator, will be
available to answer questions about these
and other items during reunion week,
September 12-17. The museum will be open
the following hours during the week:
Mon., Tues., and Fri. | 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Wed. and Thurs. | 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Saturday | 8 a.m. – 12 noon

Watercolors by Richard Schilling
shown at Great Plains Museum
“Autumn’s Bounty,” one
of the watercolors from
Dr. Richard Schilling’s
Portraits of the Prairie:
the Land that Inspired
Willa Cather.
Dr. Richard Schilling, a DDS 1957 alumnus of the UNMC College of Dentistry, created a book of
his unique watercolor paintings and ink sketches depicting scenes from Nebraska that relate to
“Catherland.”
Published by the University of Nebraska Press, Portraits of the Prairie: the Land that Inspired
Willa Cather also features excerpts from Cather’s books and comments by Schilling. Earlier this
year, Portraits of the Prairie was chosen by Publishers Weekly as one of the Top Ten books of
2011 in the Art and Architecture category.
An exhibit of the paintings and sketches is on display at UNL’s Great Plains Art Museum in
downtown Lincoln through the end of September and then travels to venues in Red Cloud, NE,
and Loveland, CO, through April 2012. The book can be purchased through the University of
Nebraska Press by calling 800-848-6224 or online at www.nebraskapress.unl.edu.
Schilling and 12 other College of Dentistry alumni were featured in the Fall 2007 Cornhusker
Impressions in a series about the art and science of dentistry.

‘Your contribution is a great way
to thank the dental college’
By Susan Norby, Director of Development,
University of Nebraska Foundation
A very loyal, supportive alumnus recently sent
me this statement to include in an upcoming
25th class reunion giving appeal:
“Your contribution is a great way to thank
the dental college for the education you
received, which helped make you the best
dentist, dental hygienist, orthodontist,
endodontist, periodontist, pediatric dentist
or oral surgeon in your community.”
This reminder is right on the mark. The crux
of charitable giving for your alma mater
is about giving back to an institution that
helped you succeed professionally and has
been pivotal to your career and lifestyle. In
so doing, your gift helps the college continue
its mission of educating generations of oral
health professionals who will soon join you as
colleagues and fellow alumni.
The college depends on your charitable
support and puts all gifts to excellent use.
Charitable giving has an especially vital role,
as state funding and tuition alone do not
cover all that’s needed to provide modern,
world-class oral health education.
programs such as Dental Day, the Sealant
Program and the Sharing Clinic, which reach
patients who otherwise may not have access
to oral health care.
And now it’s seen through the success of
the Campaign for Nebraska: Unlimited
Possibilities, the University of Nebraska’s
comprehensive fundraising initiative led
by the University of Nebraska Foundation.
This campaign seeks gifts to the College of
Dentistry to create and sustain a margin
of excellence in comprehensive oral health
clinical instruction, research and patient
care. The campaign recognizes philanthropy
is critical to achieving and sustaining
our college’s status as one of the finest
institutions for oral health education.
Publicly announced in 2009, the campaign
concludes in 2014. The goal for the College
of Dentistry is to raise $12 million in gifts and
qualified planned gifts. As of May 31, 2011,
alumni and friends have generously given
nearly $9.4 million, placing us at 78 percent
of the goal.
Highlights of this support include more than
•$4.5 million for academic programs
This annual Honor Roll issue of Cornhusker
Impressions provides another opportunity
to say thank you to all who have made
an important investment in the college.
The aggregate impact of many alumni
contributing is significant and visible. It’s
seen in the state-of-the-art clinic renovations
and new equipment. It’s seen in student
scholarships to help ease the burden of
tuition debt.
•$3 million for student scholarships
It’s seen in the incredible research programs—
from studies about cancer cell-signaling, to
bone degeneration, to targeted delivery of
pharmaceuticals, and more—all advancing
health science and critical thinking.
•Ameritas insurance company committing
$250,000 to oral cancer programs.
It’s seen in the impact giving has on our
patient-centered, community outreach
•$930,000 for faculty support
•$775,000 for capital and equipment
improvements
•$44,500 for research
Exciting headlines related to philanthropy
include
•Receiving five new $100,000 endowed
faculty fellowships.
•Completing an extensive 12-year
renovation made possible by $12 million in
private and state support.
With the Campaign for Nebraska, we now
turn our focus on charitable support for

the people of the college—our talented
faculty, students and the patients served.
The campaign provides an opportunity to
increase endowed support for faculty, which
is essential to recognize the accomplishments
of talented instructors and researchers and
helps retain and recruit the best. We must
also increase the number of scholarships
available for students. And we seek endowed
support for patient-care programs.
As you think about your career and the role
the college has played, please consider
investing in the college’s future. Your gifts
make an incredible difference, and gifts of
all amounts are appreciated. I’m available to
visit with you to help determine a giving plan
right for you. Thank you for helping make the
college stronger and better for the profession
and future generations.

Kudos
More than 225 needy children
benefitted from services provided June
2-4 at Dental Day XX in the Nebraska
Panhandle. Dean John Reinhardt noted
the “remarkable spirit of giving at each
site” – Alliance, Chadron, Gordon, and

manikins in preclinic laboratories and
clinics, and learn about the dental school
application process.
Congratulations to Dr. Hany Makkawy
for his volunteer work at the People’s
Health Center in Lincoln. Makkawy and
dental students from the College of
Dentistry provided root canal treatment
for many patients at the center over the

cover Big Man on campus this fall is SimMan, a patient simulation system
used to teach general emergency response techniques to dental and hygiene students and to teach
graduate students how to respond to anesthesia-related emergencies.
6 Read about four Nebraska dental students, all leaders, filling significant
leadership roles in national dental student organizations in 2011-2012. Dean John Reinhardt said it
is rare for the college to have so many students serving at the same time or succeeding each other in
these important national leadership positions.
8 Remodeled preclinic labs offer clean air, convenient computer monitors at
workstations, and a “psychological boost,” says Dr. Larry Haisch, project coordinator.
