Janet Guthmiller, D.D.S., Ph.D., associate dean of academic affairs and professor in the department of periodontology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, has been appointed as the new dean of the College of Dentistry at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The appointment is effective Sept. 1, pending approval by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.
Guthmiller will succeed John Reinhardt, D.D.S., who is stepping down after 14 years as UNMC’s dentistry dean.
“Dr. Guthmiller brings a wealth of experience as a dental educator and researcher,” said UNMC Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D. “She possesses the leadership qualities we need to build on the reputation and accomplishments of the College of Dentistry.”
Prior to her current position, Guthmiller served on the faculty of the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery (now the University of Maryland School of Dentistry) and the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. She has been the associate dean at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill since 2007.
