PCSO Bulletin Editor

As most PCSO members know, Dr. Robert Boyd, a
renowned orthodontist, periodontist, educator,
and orthodontic researcher, recently stepped
down from his position as department chair at
the Department of Orthodontics at the University
of the Pacific's Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. As a beneficiary of his commitment for innovative clinical advancement and
academic excellence, I wish to take a moment to
recognize his monumental contributions to the
field of orthodontics for more than 40 years.
In 1970, Dr. Boyd received his doctorate of dental
surgery from Temple University. He then received
postgraduate certificates in periodontics (1972)
and orthodontics (1974) from the University of
Pennsylvania. In 1982, he earned a master's degree in education from the University of Florida.
Dr. Boyd worked at the University of California,
San Francisco, for 15 years, and he last served as a

professor and chair of the division of orthodontics
there. At the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry,
he served as the Frederick T. West Endowed Chair
of the Department of Orthodontics. He is also a
diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics,
a fellow of both the American and International
Colleges of Dentists, and a member of the Pierre
Fauchard Academy.
Dr. Boyd has been a pioneer in research related to
the Invisalign system and cone-beam computed
tomography (CBCT), among many other topics.
He was the principal investigator for the first clinical study of the orthodontic appliance Invisalign,
which has led him to publish numerous papers
on Invisalign since 2000. Throughout his career,
he has published more than 150 scientific articles,
chapters, and abstracts and presented nearly 500
continuing education courses and lectures worldwide. His contribution has been recognized by the
American Association of Orthodontists Foundation (AAOF) with the Robert L. Boyd Biomedical
Research Award (2015). This is his second award
with the AAOF, after the AAO Foundation Blair
Award in 2014, the organization's highest honor
for meritorious service. He is also the recipient
of the John Valentine Mershon Memorial Award
from the American Association of Orthodontists
(AAO).
"The creation of the Robert L. Boyd Biomedical
Research Award speaks volumes about Bob Boyd's
character," said Robert James Bray, DDS, MS,
AAOF President, and Past President of the AAO.
"Bob Boyd has been an active and supportive
member of the AAO Foundation for many years.
He served as Vice Chair of the AAOF Planning and
Awards Review Committee (PARC) for 2 full terms
at the very beginning of our Awards Program and
helped guide us in those early years. We have
funded more than $10 million in awards designed
to benefit the specialty of orthodontics, its patients, and our membership."1
