Cheers to Charlie
Our long-time advocate, voice, lobbyist and friend, Mr. Charles “Charlie” Schnabel, has announced his retirement with TAPD. Charlie has been at the forefront of pediatric dental issues for most of our careers and has helped create legislation that has impacted how we practice.
His guidance helped make our organization relevant at the Capitol and created a better future for the oral healthcare of the children of Texas. The TAPD will honor him this February 2019 with a retirement reception following our Lobby Day.

Honoring Dr. Suzi Seale
Posted on July 26, 2018
Former students, current residents, faculty and friends went to Dallas in June 2018 to honor the life of Dr. Suzi Seale.
Dr. Suzi Seale has made an enduring difference in the professional paths of pediatric dentistry graduate students for more than four decades at Texas A&M College of Dentistry. With 23 years of leadership as department head, plus 17 as graduate program director, it’s safe to say the ’70 ’72 alumna came into contact with each and every one of them.
