“Last year we were privileged to have earned 8 EXCEL awards, and this year our publications and products more than doubled that tally,” said Michael D. Springer, senior vice president of business and publishing. “It is a testament to the quality and breadth we provide to our members, as well as to the talent and effort of our editorial and design teams.”

Dr. Vaughn’s guest blog post, which received silver in the Digital media: blog single post category, details the moments when dentistry is a struggle and what one can do to overcome those “dark days.”

“There will be days where you want to give up. There will be days where the stresses seem to be too much. But don’t let them overcome you. Find an outlet. Vent your frustrations, and be free of them,” he wrote. “Because one day you will find that perfect job. You will pay off that monstrous debt. You will find your place in this profession that you’ve been working so hard for your whole life.”

    Dr. Vaughn is a good writer. I just read some of his other posts on this blog. He definitely brings some unique insights. His post on July 9th about dentistry being like a Taylor Swift concert, was an insight I’d never heard before.

    It’s refreshing to see a unique and interesting perspective being brought to our profession, which all to often falls in to “dry” technical speak.
