O. Lee Wilson, DMD, Chair and Program Director of the Department of General Dentistry, received the prestigious Tennessee Dental Association (TDA) Fellowship Award during the recent Music City Dental Conference held in Nashville, the 148th annual meeting of the TDA. The Fellowship Award is presented to no more than 12 deserving Tennessee dentists each year who make noteworthy contributions of their time and talent toward professional progress and the public they serve. It is the TDA's highest award presented annually. At the The University of Tennessee Medical Center, Dr. Wilson has been instrumental in advocating for patients with special needs. He has been working with special needs children for more than 27 years, and he has found that the best method to treat overly sensitive patients is to take them into the operating room so that they can be put to sleep under anesthesia. Through his efforts, a Dental Operating Room Fellowship was initiated in 2014 to train dentists to work with specialized patients.
