Dr. Tucker passed away
January 12th 2016
Today we mourn the loss of our esteemed founder, mentor and friend, Dr. Richard V. Tucker.
Dr. Tucker’s friends and colleagues from around the world will remember him as a dedicated clinician whose research and creativity in the realm of cast gold techniques provided a model of clinical excellence. His dedication to the principle of providing long-lived, beautiful dental work for our patients inspires us to pursue the rigorous and rewarding relationship of student and mentor in the study club setting.
We will miss, most of all, the kindness and humility Dr. Tucker brought to all of his relationships and we rejoice in the legacy he leaves us.
Thank you, Dr. Tucker, for the many gifts you have given us. Thank you, you will live in all of us forever.
Dr. Carol Klingensmith, DMD
Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
