Facing Declining Enrollments, Willard College Announces Sunsetting of Dental Studies Minor and its long-time director, Dr. Utica Flosz

Dear Campus Colleagues and Communities,

It is the end of an era. We have decided to sunset the Dental Studies Minor and its long-serving director, Dr. Utica Flosz. Dr. Flosz pioneered Dental Studies in the 1970s, and trained generations of students in the myriad subjects that fall under that disciplines umbrella: Insurance claims, billing, orthodontics and dental history, malpractice law, etc. Students currently in the program will complete the minor program remotely or at Pinecone College or through course waiver substitutions.

Sincerely sad, Dr. President Henry Cotton

  1. This is SO short sighted. The DS minor is probably THE biggest thing that draws students to Willard. This is going to accelerate the downward spiral. Maybe Willard could start up a new dental assistant program! I hear there’s space available in downtown Ovid to house such a program

  2. “Sincerely sad” indeed.
