In February 2019, periodontology lost one of its greats - Dr. Mark Setter. Dr. Setter was well-loved, and contributed to the field in many ways. He practiced for 30+ years, lectured, and mentored many dentists, periodontists, and students. To honor Dr. Setter's memory, Mrs. Susan Setter and Drs. Jason Souyias, Jason Stoner, Mitch Godat worked with the AAP Foundation to establish the Dr. Mark K. Setter Leadership in Periodontology and Dental Implantology Award. This annual $10,000 award will recognize a periodontal resident who exemplifies the leadership qualities that Dr. Setter lived and encouraged throughout his lifetime. Special thanks to BioHorizons, Salvin Denal Specialties, Inc., and the North American Society of Periodontists for their generous support of this award.
The 2022 Dr. Mark K. Setter Leadership in Periodontology and Dental Implantology award was given to Julia Shelbourn, University of Texas Health and Science Center at San Antonio.
