Martyn GreenMartyn S. Green, D.D.S., M.S., CAGS, FACD, Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology

Position:

Associate Professor of Periodontology

Director, Graduate Periodontics

University of Tennessee, College of Dentistry

AAL Program Attended:

American Academy of Periodontology Foundation fellowship to ADEA/AAL Institute for Teaching and Learning, 2015

Professional Achievement:

After twenty-five years of private practice and part-time teaching, I had to sell my practice due to a major illness. My natural inclination was to go into teaching. I loved teaching part-time and thought I would enjoy going to full time. I went into it full throttle. Within three years, I had received my M.S. in Health Professions Education and became a director of a graduate program. I know that it is never too late to switch professions and we always have room to excel. I find teaching to be extremely rewarding and I love giving back to my profession. I also find my clinical experience to be particularly valuable to the residents. I know I can make an impact on their lives both professionally and personally.
