The 10 Under 10 award honors dentistry’s rising stars: dentists who are giving their all, sparking change and inspiring others – all less than 10 years after graduating from dental school.
These winners have established charity events, mentored their peers, testified before lawmakers, helped develop innovative new technologies, steered young people toward careers in dentistry and so, so much more. Photo by EZ Event Photography
