The American Dental Association frequently stresses the importance of regular dental checkups to ensure that patients are not at risk for periodontal disease or oral cancer. While some avoid going to visit the dentist keep in mind that they complete important work and often dedicate their lives to the profession.
One such individual was recently awarded the ADA's Gold Medal Award for his commitment to dental care. Dr Harold C. Slavkin was honored for his contributions to dental research.
This award is only presented once every three years to individuals who have demonstrated that they are engaged in advancing dentistry. President of the ADA John Findley described this year's winner as "one of dentistry's most influential and forward-thinking leaders."
Dr Slavkin teaches dental care to those hoping to enter the field and has also completed research and papers outlining his discoveries and work.
It may be a surprise to learn of your family dentists' successes which is why it is advisable to visit him or her for regular dental checkups. Kids should go before they return to school for the new year and be reminded that it is important to brush and floss twice each day.
