New York State Dental Foundation’s Deans Award Recognizes Five Outstanding Dental Students

Maricelle Uy Abayon, Eastman Dental Center.

abayonGraduating as one of the highest ranking students at the University of the Philippines and ranked highest in her dental school class, it would seem there is little left for Dr. Abayon to achieve. Yet, in less than two years at Eastman Dental Center, Dr. Abayon has demonstrated an ability to form excellent relationships with patients, administrators, staff and faculty, while, at the same time, performing at the highest level in the difficult master of science program at the University of Rochester.

The advanced education in general dentistry program at Eastman has always been considered demanding because of the required literature reviews, case presentations, research seminars and academic classes, to say nothing of the patient component of the program. Dr. Abayon has been an active participant in all of these areas and still finds time to lend a hand to others. She has never refused a request to help with emergency patients or to assist another resident in a difficult procedure. Dr. Abayon’s unique ability to recognize the social, economic, psychological, medical and financial impediments to successful dental treatment for her patients, and to do so with both an air of confidence and a sense of humility, evidence a maturity far beyond her years.
