The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine Langkamp Allison Award recognizes a third-year dental student interested in pursuing a career in dental education. 
This year, we have two award recipients who have shown their passion and commitment to teaching, and their desire to pursue an academic career and contribute to the greater community.  

Please join us in congratulating the recipients of the 2023 Langkamp Allison Award, Class of 2025 students Tiana Soldacki-Han and Reid Frye.
