Meet Department Head Heather Elliott-Famularo!

Since her arrival in January 2018, she has led UConn DMD through an exciting first eight months. Not only has the first floor of the Bishop Center undergone major facilities’ renovations, but we also welcomed 49 new DMD Freshmen, eight new graduate students, and six new full-time faculty members into the DMD family. Heather said she is most looking forward to working with faculty to develop and refine the curriculum, build new facilities, and broaden DMD’s outreach in Connecticut this semester.Watch her interview with us to learn more about Heather and her goals for the future of DMD.
