MORGANTOWN, WV -

Dr. Anthony "Tom" Borgia, chairman of the Department of Endodontics in the West Virginia University School of Dentistry, has been awarded the 2013 Edward M. Osetek Educator Award from the American Association of Endodontists.

Recipients of the Edward M. Osetek Educator Award must have demonstrated status as an outstanding educator by earning the esteem and respect of students and faculty; by the quality of former/current students and their impact on endodontics; and by receiving invitations to present endodontic seminars, lectures or workshops at other educational or research institutions. He or she must have less than 10 years of full-time teaching experience.

Borgia left his private practice in March 2010 and accepted a full-time position at the WVU School of Dentistry as the department chair and pre-doctoral director in the Department of Endodontics. Since then, he has successfully restructured the undergraduate and graduate endodontic program.

Borgia has used department alumni donations to remodel both the pre-doctoral and post-doctoral clinics, including the installation of surgical-quality endodontic microscopes. 

He has created a curriculum to help undergrads better understand the concepts of endodontics. In 2011, he accepted the Outstanding Teacher Award from the School of Dentistry's graduating class.
