Vi Dinh

Ms. Vi Dinh is a Westerville, Ohio resident and an Ohio State alumna. As a D1 student in the College of Dentistry, she was recently selected as the 2020 recipient of the Richard C. Veler, DDS, and Betty G. Veler Dental Scholarship. 

Chosen for her outstanding academic merit, demonstrated interest in professional service, and exceptional character, Ms. Dinh will receive full, renewable, in-state tuition throughout the remainder of her time in the DDS program. 

Describing her goals as a Veler Scholar and an aspiring dentist, Ms. Dinh said, "As a future health care professional, I would like to use my skills and knowledge to help not only my patients, but the rest of the Columbus community. I also hope to mentor a future generation of dentists who will be able to continue making an impact through their own careers." 

Dean Patrick Lloyd congratulated Ms. Dinh, saying, "Each year, the Veler Scholarship committee selects a remarkable student who will benefit from the Velers' vision and generosity. Ms. Dinh is one of a select group of students who have shown courage, commitment, and dedication in their efforts to succeed as aspiring dental professionals. I congratulate Ms. Dinh for her hard work and her many talents that will benefit her future patients and the dental profession."
