The Denobi Awards, an industry-wide dental awards program, held its annual red-carpet gala today and named 14 individuals and one dental team as recipients.
The Denobi Awards Gala is the premier celebration recognizing and honoring excellence in dentistry and is focused on honoring the “unsung heroes” who’ve made outstanding contributions to the dental industry around the world. With the 2022 gala exclusively sponsored by Patterson Dental, hundreds of nominations were received from across various roles in the industry, and a shortlist was released in January. In partnership with the National Mobile & Teledentistry Conference, the red-carpet gala took place in on March 5, 2022 in Las Vegas, NV and was also available virtually via live-stream.
The gala culminated with the presentation of the Dr. Lou Shuman Denobi Pinnacle Achievement Award, the program’s highest award honoring an individual whose leadership and ongoing contributions have dramatically impacted the profession. The recipient of this year’s award was Dr. Pamela Maragliano Muniz, Editor in Chief of Dental Economics.
Tickets are on sale now for the next Denobi Awards Gala on March 4, 2023 in Dallas, Texas. Nominations open October 1, 2022.
