Dr. Yuly Vilderman, DDS
Dr. Yuly Vilderman, 1993 graduate of Pacific’s International Dental Studies program of University of Pacific (UOP) Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, strongly believes that his new life in America happened because he had good fortune to meet some of the University of Pacific dental school’s faculty, particularly Dr. Dugoni himself and Dr. Alan Gluskin, who encouraged him to enter University of Pacific.
Dr. Yuly Vilderman emigrated into US in 1989 with his wife, son and daughter from his native Odessa, Ukraine. While Dr. Vilderman has practiced dentistry in Odessa for 21 years, he still had to restart his career in US all over again. And the “American Dream” story started first with his son, Dr. Alex Vilderman attending University Of Pacific’s IDS program and graduating from it in 1992. Through his son, Dr. Yuly had an opportunity to meet members of the faculty, who influenced his decision to enroll in the International Dental Studies program of UOP and eventually he graduated in 1993. But father and son were not the only members of the Vilderman family to receive degrees from the University Of Pacific. Dr Tatyana Vilderman, Dr. Yuly’s daughter graduated with DDS degree in 2000 and practices alongside of her father since then.
