Nick Marineau Lecture Series

This annual lecture is held in honor of an outstanding leader and vital contributor to the dental community, Dr. Nicholas H. Marineau. Dr. Marineau received his DMD from the then University of Oregon Dental School (now OHSU) in 1957. After two years in the Air Force, he entered private practiced in Beaverton, OR, where he practiced general dentistry until he passed away in September of 2000. Nick was always active in state, alumni and private organizations that were dedicated to the advancement of dentistry. He served as President of the Oregon Dental Association, President of his local dental society, President of the Dental School Alumni Association, and editor of the Journal of the Oregon Dental Association. He also was appointed twice by the Governor to the Oregon Board of Dentistry and served as its president for one term.

Nick believed professionalism was the underlying key to success in dentistry. To him, professionalism meant that the dentist had an obligation to be continually upgrading his/her clinical skills to insure that a patient’s trust was not misplaced but rather rewarded with the best of dental care. Nick believed passionately in continuing dental education and served as a study club mentor himself for many years. As an academician, Nick was demanding but fair. His expectations were high for the students, but the students also realized that he would be there for them to help them meet those challenges. Nick’s enthusiasm for dentistry was contagious and he served as great role model for the students.
