As of June 29th, 2018, Dr. Larry Doyle officially retired as Director of the Advanced Education Program in Orthodontics at Oregon Health & Science University. But retirement didn’t last long, because on the following Monday Larry trudged up to the top of the west hills and started the on-boarding process of a new hire…..as part-time clinical faculty. We are very grateful that Dr. Doyle has agreed to stay on with the clinical faculty, as we move to a new era of leadership at OHSU Orthodontics.
Dr. Doyle began teaching at OHSU in September of 1981. Over the years, he has shepherded the education of more than 100 alumni as they completed their clinical training and their MS degrees.
Dr. Larry Michael Doyle was borne in Oakland California, February 6th, 1943. Larry grew up in Eureka CA, attending Lincoln Elementary, Eureka Junior and High Schools. In 1965 he completed his major in Zoology at Humboldt State University in Arcadia CA, married Gail with a honeymoon in Hawaii. After completing his dental education, Larry practiced general dentistry for 8 years, before specializing in Orthodontics at OHSU from 1977-1979. He worked as an associate in an orthodontic practice in Fortuna CA before joining the OHSU full-time faculty in 1981. Since then, Dr. Doyle has been a strong supporter of Oregon Pinot Noir, corn beef and cabbage, the movie “Singing in the Rain”, and the OHSU Orthodontic program.
OHSU Alumni are indebted to the dedication of Dr. Doyle. For more than a quarter century, Larry has been an integral component of orthodontic education in the Pacific Northwest. Congratulations to Dr. Doyle on his amazing accomplishments, and best-wishes from all on your retirement from Full-Time teaching.
