William Synan recognized by American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

William Synan, DDS, was recently recognized with the 2019 Daniel M. Laskin Award for Outstanding Predoctoral Educator in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.

Recipients of this annual award must exemplify the ideals of an educator, have earned the respect of both their peers and students, and be actively involved in efforts to improve undergraduate education.

As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) at UI Hospitals & Clinics and a professor and director of the predoctoral oral surgery program at the UI College of Dentistry, Synan collaborates with both organizations, educating dental students and assisting with the supervision of the oral surgery residents’ educational and clinical experiences while they rotate from UI Hospitals & Clinics to the College of Dentistry. Synan assembles and directs a team of oral surgeons who provide an intensive exposure to dentoalveolar surgery, single drug sedations, and outstanding didactic lectures.
