Nominations for the 2022 ADA 10 Under 10 Award now through Dec 31th

This award recognizes 10 amazing dentists who graduated from dental school less than 10 years ago — showcasing dentists who demonstrate excellence and inspire others in science, education and research, practice excellence, philanthropy, leadership and advocacy.

Anyone may nominate eligible new dentists for this award at between October 1 and December 31, 2021. The New Dentist Committee will select the winners, and recipients will be announced in spring 2022. Winners will receive a $1,000 cash prize and be recognized at next year’s SmileCon and in various ADA publications and channels. Nominees must be members of the American Dental Association and graduated from dental school between the years of 2012 and 2021. Current members of the ADA New Dentist Committee are not eligible to receive the award (state and local New Dentist Committee members are eligible, however). Self-nominations are not permitted.

Dental societies are encouraged to promote the award and share the 2021 winner stories as posted on New Dentist News. Show the world what new dentists can achieve!
