Gobetti Honored by ICD

Ann Arbor, MI — December 17, 2015 — Dr. Jack Gobetti (DDS 1968, MS oral diagnosis and radiology 1971), was recently honored by the International College of Dentists for donating more than 35,000 oral pathology images which he photographed during his 38-year teaching career at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.

Gobetti, an ICD fellow who retired in 2006, received USA/ICD’s Foundation President Award for his work that also included identifying more than 200 diseases and oral health maladies in different stages of development.  

Some of those images will be digitized and included in a database accompanied by case histories to be used by dental students to gain skills that will enable them to recognize a range of oral pathologies.

ICD is the world’s oldest and largest honor society for dentists.  Established in 1920, ICD has more than 12,000 members in 122 countries who have been awarded the title of Fellow in the organization.
