Dr. Calvin McCulloh has received the 2015 H. Moren Fuller Award, given by the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s School of Dentistry Alumni Association. McCulloh was presented the award during the Alabama Dental Association’s annual meeting in Orange Beach, Ala. McCulloh attended Auburn University for three years and went on to UAB’s School of Dentistry without receiving his pre-dental degree. In 2008, Stewart Schneller, former dean of COSAM, determined that McCulloh had completed appropriate coursework to be awarded his pre-dental, biomedical sciences degree from Auburn. After approval by the Auburn University provost, president and board of trustees, a private graduation ceremony was held at the McCullohs’ home where he was presented with his degree.

McCulloh graduated from dental school in 1956 and after completing two years of military service with the U.S. Air Force, opened a practice in Vestavia Hills, Ala., in 1958 where he remained until 2000. He then taught at the UAB School of Dentistry until his retirement in 2010.

Among many awards and honors, he was the first recipient of the Birmingham Dentist of the Year Award and was the first dentist to serve as Southeast regent for the American College of Dentists from 2002 to 2006. He was also president of the Alabama Dental Association and the Birmingham District Dental Society.

The H. Moren Fuller award is named for one of the first members of the UAB School of Dentistry Advisory Board.
