Iowa City resident receives dentistry award

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Jamie Sharp, associate professor (clinical) and coordinator for continuing dental education at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, and an Iowa City native, has received an honorary award for College of Dentistry staff from the University MU Chapter of Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), a national honor dental society.

The annual award is given to an outstanding dental staff member who has demonstrated scholarship, character and potential promise for the advancement of dentistry and service to humanity.

OKU was founded in 1914, and the MU Chapter was chartered at the UI in 1923. The three Greek letters represent teeth, health and conservation.
