The Nash Institute for Dental Learning, Charlotte, North Carolina, is proud to announce that Debra Engelhardt-Nash has been awarded the Gordon Christensen Outstanding Lecturer award for 2015. The Christensen Award was established in 1990 to acknowledge Dr. Christensen’s many contributions to the dental profession. The award was presented at the 2015 Chicago Dental Society Mid-winter Meeting.
“It is such a genuine pleasure to award this,” Dr. Christensen said when he called Mrs. Engelhardt-Nash to stand beside him in front of her classroom and receive the plaque. “She’s telling you how to produce more and enjoy dentistry, and she does it with vivacity, you can hear that she’s passionate.” Mrs. Engelhardt-Nash is believed to be the first non-clinician to receive this award.
Mrs. Engelhardt-Nash is a consultant, lecturer, and trainer at The Nash Institute. She has presented workshops internationally for study groups and other organizations, and has served as a contributing author and editor for several journals. Mrs. Engelhardt-Nash has been recognized for more than 10 years as a top consultant, educator, and leader in continuing education and was named one of the top 25 Women In Dentistry in 2014.
