The Omaha District Dental Society (ODDS) presented a donation of $14,000 to the School of Dentistry for the Dr. Ben Kutler Memorial Fund on Tuesday, Sept 9. The Kutler Fund was established to help provide dental care to those who can least afford it. Dr. Kutler, a 1945 graduate and 1997 School of Dentistry Alumni Merit Awardee, was a role model for the profession of dentistry in his compassionate care of the less fortunate.
The ODDS hosted the Dr. Ben Kutler Memorial Golf Classic on July 20, 2015, at Quarry Oaks. Ninety golfers, including ODDS members and leaders, Nebraska Dental Association leadership and faculty members from Creighton University School of Dentistry and University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry participated in this event. In attendance for the ODDS dinner were sons Bruce Kutler, David Kutler, and Howard Kutler. Son Robert Kutler of Hawaii, and daughter Laura Kutler of California were not able to attend.
