School of Dentistry Award Recipients
Distinguished Alumnus in Dentistry Award
Patrick M. Lloyd, D.D.S., M.S., Dent ’78, Grad ’89
Patrick says nothing is more rewarding than knowing that the faculty who helped him at Marquette can see how he used the knowledge, insights and perspectives they gave him.
Outstanding Dental Service Award
Robert P. Kustra, D.D.S., Dent ’57
When Robert was young, his goal while attending St. Josaphat and Marquette University High School was to get an education leading to a career. After graduating with his dental degree, he dreamed bigger, inspired to work in private practice for 55 years and extend his care to those on society’s margins nationally and internationally.
Young Alumnus of the Year Award
Ryan T. Braden, D.D.S., Dent ’05
Lake Geneva, Wis.
Ryan says he’ll never stop learning. As the youngest president in the history of the Wisconsin Dental Association, he is charged with representing the state’s more than 3,000 dentists, which he says is “a great honor.”
