Product Description:
 
Born in San Francisco in 1925, Art Dugoni?s immigrant parents and grandparents taught him that in America, the ?impossible? was always possible. With an early life shadowed by the Great Depression and the Second World War, he entered the Navy?s V-12 officer?s program at Gonzaga University as a pre-dent student, in 1943. There, he met a strikingly beautiful seventeen-year-old named Katherine Groo. For Art, it was love at first sight. After the war, Art found himself back home, enrolled in the College of Physician & Surgeons; it was here his life?s mission began to take shape. Art?s first friend at the school was Dean Ernest Sloman, just one of the giants of dentistry that helped to shape his future. With the support and guidance of other faculty: Kingsbury, West, Sweet, Young, True, and Tocchini, he learned never to expect anything less from himself than the very best he could do. Art?s quest for excellence faced countless personal and professional challenges. But he drew great strength from colleagues, students, and admirers in addition to seven loving children, a small army of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and the beautiful woman who graced his life for seventy-two years.
