Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Brian C. Hoard, DDS, has been appointed Chair of the Department of Dentistry, effective July 1, 2017.

Dr. Hoard graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1978, followed by two years of General Practice Dental Residency at UVA. In 1980, he became a full-time faculty member here with the Department of Dentistry. Dr. Hoard is the Dental Director of UVA Children’s Hospital and Director of the General Practice Residency Program, which allows graduates to expand their clinical knowledge and learn more about treating medically compromised patients. His clinical practice covers sleep apnea, trauma, and general dentistry.

Dr. Hoard is committed to the University of Virginia and the School of Medicine, having been in Charlottesville for 37 years.

Thank you to Thomas E. Leinbach, DDS, Chair of the Department of Dentistry, for his long history of service to the School of Medicine, the Department of Dentistry, and to our community. I am grateful for Dr. Leinbach’s efforts to provide necessary dental care to the patients of the UVAHS and community outreach services at the Charlottesville Free Clinic and the Remote Area Clinics. His dedication is a model for us all.
