Posted on April 1, 2016

The Dawson Academy recognized 20 outstanding dental professionals at their annual alumni retreat on March 12, 2016 in Clearwater Beach, Fla.

“Our annual alumni retreat is a weekend unlike any other; it features unique continuing education courses, an opportunity to recognize outstanding individuals within our industry and time to re-connect with students past and present alike,” Joan Forrest, President & CEO of The Dawson Academy explained.

Dr. Peter Dawson, Founder of The Dawson Academy, shared, “Recognizing current and upcoming leaders in the dental industry is one of my favorite parts of the weekend. We are so fortunate at The Academy to be surrounded by and teach so many exceptional dental professionals. It most certainly makes selecting recipients difficult.”

Each year The Dawson Academy recognizes dental professionals for their contributions, passion and commitment to the dental field.

“Those recognized this year serve as an inspiration to those of us around them both in the dental field and within their communities,” explained Forrest.
