New dentist nominees sought for ADA 10 Under 10 Awards

The American Dental Association is seeking nominations through Dec. 31 to recognize 10 new dentists who are demonstrating excellence in their work and inspiring others.

Winners of the third annual ADA 10 Under 10 Award will receive a $1,000 cash award and be recognized in various ADA publications and channels, including the ADA News and the New Dentist Now blog. The ADA New Dentist Committee will choose and announce the winners in March 2020.

Last year, the ADA New Dentist Committee received more than 120 submitted nominations. The 10 recipients were recognizing for their work in geriatric dentistry research, development of new pedagogical models for dental students and in the expansion in access to care in their respective communities, and more.

Nominees must be active ADA members who graduated from dental school between the years 2010 and 2019. Self-nominations are not permitted.
