Over the past three years, we have met some incredible women – a 99 year-old dental icon who wrote the “Hygienist’s Bible”, an endodontist who raised nearly $200K+ to provide low cost dental care to those in need while operating a two office practice, and a periodontist that has personally donated $75,000 in scholarships to the Florida State College Dental Hygiene School where she also teaches.
This year is no different! During our 4th annual celebration in June, we will honor six exemplary women who are trailblazers in our industry – a Kois Center mentor, the developer of the Hands-on Learning Lab for children, a retired US Army Colonel, a humanitarian who donates her free time as well as supplies, a clinical assistant professor at Boston University’s dental school since age 25, and a dentist who’s working to bring toxic dental waste back to clean water.
During our celebration we will innovate through new learning! Our keynote speaker Libby Gill will share leadership guidance with attendees to drive passion and productivity in their organizations. Robb Zbierski will present “The Proper Care and Feeding of Your Attitude” which will help attendees learn about the role attitude plays in getting better results…in every aspect of your life; from relationships to business to health & fitness.
We will also give back! In lieu of a fee for our celebration, we ask that attendees bring non-perishable healthy snack items for the National Head Start Association. A list of eligible products will be provided to attendees prior to the event.
This inspiring, two-day program is FREE to attend, however registration is required. We will also offer 1 CE credit for Robb Zbierski’s program. To register, visit:
