There has been an overwhelming response to the Leaders in Practice award program. In just two months, over 500 dental health professionals were nominated for their contributions to the industry and their communities.
It is exciting (but not surprising) to see so many in the field valued for their commitment to excellence and integrity, two of the most frequently chosen descriptors for the nominees. There has also been an incredible show of support for Dental Assistants and Dental Hygienists, the backbones of the clinical practice, and the group with the greatest number of nominations.
Congratulations to everyone who was nominated. Your contributions are greatly appreciated by your patients and peers a like!
What Happens Next?
All nominations will be reviewed over the month of December and a shortlist of up to 10 nominees, in each category, will be published on leadersinpractice.ca in January. Once the shortlist is finalized, members of the dental industry and the general public, including patients, family, and friends will be invited to cast their vote online!
Public voting will be open January 1st to January 31st, 2019.
How will the Winners be Announced?
Winners will be announced through an 8-page feature in the April issue of Oral Health Journal. The winner of each category will have a full-page spotlight, including an interview and professional photos of them at work in their practice.
Thank you to everyone who participated and made the inaugural year of Leaders in Practice a success. Nominations for next year are ready to go and will open in September 2019. Register at leadersinpractice.ca to be notified when the shortlist of nominees is announced in the New Year!
