Having a (fantasy foot)ball in San Antonio

Each year the ADA New Dentist Committee recognizes those who have demonstrated a commitment to new dentists and dental students through their enthusiasm, volunteerism and dedication to the future of the profession.

In 2014 the award for New Dentist Committee Outstanding Program Award of Excellence goes to the San Antonio District Dental Society Committee on the New Dentist.

The group formed a fantasy football league for member dentists who compete for the glory and the right to display a custom trophy in his or her office for the year. Each two-person team in the fantasy league is made up of a practicing dentist or residency student paired with a representative from a corporate sponsor (for whom the teams are named.) This friendly competition provides a unique networking opportunity that is ideal for new dentist participation.

Dr. Larry Dougherty is accepting the award on behalf of the group. Longtime readers of this blog will recognize Dr. Dougherty from his guest posts (here’s another one from Dr. Dougherty).
