For a sixth year, Incisal Edge will publish its annual ranking of the 32 Most Influential People in Dentistry. The magazine will announce all honorees in early summer, but this past Thursday evening, the crowd in attendance at a special invite-only event was privy to a cover reveal. The sneak preview spotlighted none other than Gordon J. Christensen, DDS, MSD, PhD, Founder of Clinician’s Report.
One of the magazine’s founders, Benco Dental Managing Director, Chuck Cohen discussed the Incisal Edge definition of “influential,” and introduced the surprise guest as “one of the most influential clinicians in the history of dentistry.”
A cocktail party at the Benco Dental home office in northeast Pennsylvania celebrated Dr. Christensen and his feature story in this summer’s Incisal Edge.
