Fall is always a fun time in the Alumni Office because it is full of alumni gatherings. This year, the annual UMKC School of Dentistry Alumni Reception in St. Louis was Nov. 14 in conjunction with the Mid-Continent Dental Congress meeting. Alumni from the St. Louis area gathered with food and drinks to reconnect and catch up on school news. It is always great to witness the school’s strong alumni base in other parts of the region. Next year’s meeting is in October, as the Mid-Continent Dental Congress moves to the St. Louis Union Station.
