Crest® Oral-B® is proud to recognize Sharon C. Stull of Chesapeake, Virginia with the brands’ fifth Pros in the Profession award for Registered Dental Hygienists who go above and beyond the call of duty. An advocate for both education and community service, Sharon is dedicated to increasing care for segments of the society who are unable to receive basic oral healthcare services and encourages dental hygiene students to have a greater awareness of the true oral health needs of society.
“Crest Oral-B is to be commended for recognizing and valuing the role dental hygienists play in improving oral healthcare for the public through the Pros in Profession award program,” said Sharon. “My commitment has always been to provide professional care to the less fortunate members of society, and to be a role model and mentor to the next generation of dental hygienists so that they will do the same.”
With a passion for education, Sharon spends a great deal of her time at Old Dominion University (ODU) School of Dental Hygiene in Norfolk, VA, as a lecturer, Community Health Coordinator and Program Director for the Bachelor of Science Online Degree Completion Program and has directed numerous Study Abroad Programs. Sharon’s relationship with her students extends beyond the classroom and she has led four study abroad trips for dental hygiene students focusing on the dental healthcare system in Germany. Further, Sharon’s work has been published in the Journal of Dental Hygiene regarding the economic impact of preventive dental hygiene services.
With this honor, Sharon will join Pros in the Profession winners Ann Benson, Trudy Meinberg, Mary Lynne Murray-Ryder and Linda Maciel on a VIP all-expense-paid trip to ADHA’s 88th Annual Session in Nashville this month. In addition, she will receive a $1,500 monetary prize, a pampering spa experience, an award and recognition at major conferences and in dental trade publications throughout the year, plus an exclusive trip to P&G headquarters.
