Valenza discussed dentistry’s evolution from a profession predominately focused on fixing problems, to a profession that embraces preventive care and wellness.  He joined dermatologist Lucile White, MD, and psychologist Clayton Neighbors, PhD, in a panel discussion of “creating a wellness mindset.”

Established in 1952, the UH College of Optometry is one of only 20 optometry schools in the United States.
