Clinical Associate Professor
School of Dentistry
Dr. Sharon Furby joined the dental faculty in August, 2000, following her attainment of a Pharmacy degree from University of Houston and her DDS from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Texas. She pursued a General Practice Residency at the University of Washington-dental school in Seattle, WA, and she spent time in her own dental practice for five years. All of these experiences have served her well in the teaching of our dental students on how to be excellent, well-rounded clinicians. She is the lead practice coordinator for our clinical students, she is also one of our treatment planners. Through her many hours of clinical treatment to our patients, to one-on-one teaching in our laboratories, and many lectures on pharmacology, she brings a wealth of expertise to our students. Dr. Furby has served our community and our dental school through many varied activities serving on nearly every committee in the School of Dentistry, both as an active participate, vice-chair and chair of several groups.
