In this issue: UMKC Residents: Waving the Flag in Arizona & Washington 5 Philanthropic Support Our first-year residents — Drs. Jodi Hentscher-Johnson, Stephen Darmitzel, 8 Total Ortho Success: Julie Olson, and Dustin Wilson — attended the Tweed Study Course in MDC 2011 Tucson Ariz., April 12–22. Many thanks to our alumni for providing financial help for their trips. Both classes attended the AAO meeting in Washington D.C. Funding from the new Sperry Zervas Memorial Scholarship helped with travel expenses for the second-year residents, all of whom presented cases at the CDABO Case 10 Senior Resident Display. Our second-year residents — Drs. Blake Borello, Llon Clendenen, Ben Research Frandsen, and David Ries — are working diligently on finishing up their MS theses and orthodontic program requirements, as well as planning the next phases of their lives. We are excited for them and look forward to calling them alumni in future! 11 2010 AAO Photo above: First-year residents Stephen Darmitzel, Dustin Wilson, Julie Olson, and Jodi Hentscher-Johnson take a break from their activities during the Tweed course to pose with Vance Dykhouse (DDS ’66, MS Ort ’70).

Philanthropic Suppor t for UMKC SupportOrthodontics Takes Many FormsThrough the auspices of the Dr. Roy J. Rinehart Memorial Foundation, accounts have been formed to aid the mission ofUMKC Orthodontics. At the April 2009 meeting of the UMKC Orthodontic Alumni Board, a request was forwarded to makeinformation available to alumni and friends of UMKC Orthodontics regarding the variety of ways contributions assist theprogram. The following are brief histories and current balances of accounts used by UMKC Orthodontics. Please use thedonor card included to make your contributions to UMKC Orthodontics.• The Department Discretionary Fund ($13,636)The funds from this account support the daily activities of the department. This includes the purchasing of equipment such as printer/scanners, the patient sign-in station, the graduation dinner, alumni reception at AAO, off-setting costs of travel by residents to meetings andspeakers to our program, and subsidizing educational activities of staff.• The Orthodontic Investment Fund ($277,902)This fund is directed by the UMKC Orthodontic Alumni Board. Every year, monies accrued through interest are directed from this fund tohelp support a variety of endeavors associated with the UMKC Graduate Orthodontics Program. This fund also makes an annual contributionto the Department Discretionary Fund.• Endowed Chair Fund ($645,108)As you are probably aware, there is an extreme shortage of orthodontic educators and UMKC is not immune to this crisis.The goal ofthis fund is to raise $1.1 million to endow a much-needed full-time faculty salary line in the Department of Orthodontics and DentofacialOrthopedics. This endowment will be similar to the Leo A. Rogers Endowed Chair currently held by Dr. Laura Iwasaki. The interest generatedfrom the fund will provide the salary of the faculty line.• Drs. Muehlebach/Thompson Fund ($29,271)The objective of this $50K capital campaign is to build a new seminar-library room for orthodontic residents and faculty. Current facilitieswithin the department are cramped, and a new seminar room-library would augment graduate orthodontic education at UMKC.• Dr. Eric J. Schweitzer Memorial Fund ($13,939)Each year, the UMKC Graduate Orthodontics Program organizes the Dr. Eric J. Schweitzer (1992) Memorial Symposium. The symposiuminvites recent orthodontic graduates to return to UMKC to make presentations to current orthodontic residents. The benefactors of theSchweitzer Memorial Symposium make it possible for our students to hear orthodontic practitioners speak frankly about the joys and thedifficulties they have encountered while embarking on their careers. The Memorial Fund generates income to offset symposium costs.• Dr. Dan Blackwell Lecture Series Fund ($3,000)Dr. Daniel Blackwell recently retired from active teaching at UMKC. To honor Dr. Blackwell’s commitment to UMKC orthodontics, a lectureseries in his name was established.• Dr. Sperry Zervas Orthodointic Scholarship ($12,270)This fund was started in 2009 by the Zervas family to memorialize Sperry Zervas (Ort ’68). The interest from this fund will be used annually tosupport three residents’ endeavors. In 2009-2010, the funds were used to supplement travel costs of the senior class to attend the AAOmeeting in Washington, DC, where they participated in the CDABO Case Displays. 5

UMKC at the 2010 AAOUMKC hosted an Alumni Reception May 2nd at this year’s meeting of the AmericanAssociation of Orthodontists in Washington, D.C. Even though the AAO program incorrectlyidentified where the UMKC Alumni Reception was being held, at least 40+ people managedto find our party amongst all the other parties taking place in the sprawling D.C. conventioncenter. UMKC Orthodontic Alumni came from as far as Australia and Germany. The sometimes boisterous crowd enjoyedfood and drink while catching up on the news of classmates and friends. During the 2010 AAO meeting, Dr. Laura Iwasaki,Leo Rogers Chair of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, gave a presentation entitled “Differences in Joint Loadsand Energy Densities May Explain Why Some TMJs Break-Down” as part of the “Rising Stars” program.
