The American Dental Association (ADA) is now accepting nominations for the 2018 10 Under 10 Awards, which recognize dentists who graduated from dental school less than 10 years ago and are already inspiring their colleagues and making a difference in the profession.

“It’s exciting to see this new generation of dentists make an impact on dentistry and in their communities,” said Ray Jarvis, DDS, New Dentist Committee chair. “If you know of a young dentist who demonstrates excellence and inspires others in science, research and education, practice excellence, philanthropy, leadership or advocacy, I would encourage you to nominate them for the 10 Under 10 Awards.”

The awardees will be recognized in ADA publications and receive a $1,000 gift card. Anyone can submit a nomination.

“Receiving a 10 Under 10 Award has been one of the highlights of my career,” said Amisha Singh, DDS, a 2017 award winner. “It’s an honor to be recognized alongside other dentists making a difference. I can’t wait to learn about the mark the 2018 awardees are making on their communities and dentistry as a whole.”

Nominations are being accepted through December 31, 2018. For more information and to submit a nomination, visit
