Members of the ADA community are making a real difference in the lives of countless people and throughout the dental profession in a particular field or society as a whole.


We believe they deserve to be recognised, and so, every year we ask you to nominate people you believe exemplify the very best of the profession so we can recognise them as outstanding mentors, role models and leaders in their field.

Past winners have included volunteers, key research contributors and those dedicated to further innovation and education – who will be recognised next?


That is up to you.
