The Show ‘N Tell event is underwritten by the R. Jack and Mary Louise Cassingham Endowed Chair in Periodontics.

The chair was established in 2003 two years before Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the LSU school of dentistry. Because of Dr. Jack and Mary Louise Cassingham’s love and devotion to each other and their family as well as Dr. Cassingham’s lifelong dedication to dentistry, their family chose to fund the endowment in their honor. Dr. Gerald Evans, head of periodontics department, currently holds the Cassingham Chair.

In 1974 Dr. Cassingham helped launch the LSUSD Postdoctoral Program in Periodontics. He taught periodontics at LSUSD for 20 years and received the distinguished clinician award in 1987, all while maintaining his periodontics practice in the LSUSD Faculty Practice.  Upon retirement in 1994, he was appointed Professor Emeritus to LSUSD. Mrs.  Cassingham attended Loyola University School of law where she graduated law review. She worked as a law clerk with the Louisiana Supreme Court for 10 years. Dr. Cassingham passed away in 2007.

Show ‘N Tell Is an annual event hosted by the LSU School of Dentistry (LSUSD) Department of Periodontics. The event couples a morning lecture given by a  noteworthy speaker followed by resident and fellow case presentations.
