Beth Cullinane

Dental Clinic Supervisor, UNMC
March 31, 2017

On behalf of the Board of Regents, I am pleased to present a KUDOS award to Beth Cullinane of UNMC. Beth is the dental clinic supervisor, where she manages a team of eight employees. She also supervises student rotations and is appointment clerk supervisor for the UNMC College of Dentistry.

Supervisor Jim Gamerl praised her leadership in organizing and implementing a new clinical model in August 2016 which revamped how patient care is delivered within the Dentistry clinics. “She took the lead on several work groups that helped coordinate all of the actions necessary to implement and operate the new clinical model. Early feedback from faculty, staff and students has been overwhelmingly positive. ”
