The D.D.S. Class of 2007 established a student scholarship in honor of Francis J. Robertello, D.M.D., M.S., M.Ed. They wished to recognize him for his outstanding teaching of operative dentistry in the laboratory, classroom and clinic.
Robertello taught their class and many others the foundations of the practice of excellent and predictable restorative dentistry, and he taught these things with compassion and without ego. While dental school is always a challenge, his students always knew where they stood with Robertello, and they knew they could have fun with him while working towards an excellent result either in the lab or in the clinic. He genuinely enjoyed his interactions with the students, and they genuinely enjoyed their interactions with him. He always inspired his students to be better.
Robertello is truly beloved in the D.D.S. Class of 2007’s memories of dental school, and he remains with them in the fundamental skills he taught them as they practice dentistry every day.
The student who is awarded the Dr. Francis J. Robertello Scholarship Endowment will have shown excellent skills in the clinical practice of operative dentistry.
