Nominate a colleague for a prestigious Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) Award.

The Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD) is accepting recommendations for awards honoring leaders in the field of lasers in dentistry. This is your opportunity to honor those who have contributed so much to the commitment to improving the health and well­-being of patients through the proper use of laser technology.

Be a part of this process by nominating anyone you feel has greatly contributed to the Academy of Laser Dentistry mission.

Please select any of the award links below to gain access to the online nomination form which includes a full description of each award.

The T.H. Maiman Award for Excellence in Dental Laser Research
The Leon Goldman Award for Clinical Excellence
The John G. Sulewski Distinguished Service Award

Many of the members of the Academy of Laser Dentistry submerge themselves in the dynamics of laser dentistry on a day-by-day basis. They put in long days at the office serving their patients, and in their free time, dedicate themselves in even deeper ways. They spend time in research, developing new treatment techniques, writing journal articles, teaching at seminars, mentoring colleagues, and spending countless hours volunteering on Academy committees. They do this without the thought of being given an award. It is up to you and the Academy to recognize their contributions.

This year’s Awards Committee will convene and evaluate your nominations:

Dr. Raminta Mastis, Chair & Vice President
Dr. John Graeber, Immediate Past President
Dr. Craig Gimbel
Dr. Mel Burchman
John Sulewski, MA
The awards will be announced electronically by November 15, 2016. Award recipients will be honored at the ALD 2017 Annual Meeting during the Presidents Awards Ceremony and Reception in Tucson, Arizona on Friday, April 7, 2017 at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort.
