A Doubleheader for Dr. Neal G. Herman:
Diplomate of the American Board of Special Care Dentistry and Region II Head Start Oral Health Consultant
 
Dr. Neal G. Herman, Professor of Pediatric Dentistry has been awarded Diplomate status by the American Board of Special Care Dentistry with proficiency in hospital dentistry. This is the highest honor and recognition available for dentists who have devoted their professional careers to the oral health needs of this very diverse population of people. Dr. Herman is one of only 107 dentists to be so recognized.

And there’s still another reason for Dr. Herman to celebrate. He has been appointed the Region II Head Start Oral Health Consultant. This is a part-time, one-day-a-week position that was created to help "promote, advocate for, and improve the oral health of Head Start and Early Head Start children and their families." It is positioned within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Dr. Herman will be collaborating with nine other Regional Consultants across the nation.
