Crest and Oral-B continue to recognize Registered Dental Hygienists (RDHs) who go above and beyond the call of duty with the third year of the Pros in the Profession awards program. These awards acknowledge the pivotal role hygienists play in their patients’ lives in addition to their unwavering personal commitment to promoting good oral health, according to parent company Procter & Gamble.
“We have seen extraordinary entries over the past several years, which is why we must continue to honor those hygienists whose passion shine through in their everyday work,” said John Scarchilli, scientific communications for P&G Oral Care. “These individuals dedicate countless hours to furthering the oral health cause, so we are pleased to be able to applaud them publicly.”Throughout the year, Crest and Oral-B will reward four exceptional RDHs who consistently display dedication towards both their patients and their craft. From September 2013 until March 2014, nominations can be submitted via a nomination tab on the Crest and Oral-B for Dental Professionals Facebook page. For the first time in the program, hygienists may nominate themselves for this coveted honor. Nominations can also be submitted by dentists, fellow hygienists, dental assistants, professional colleagues and collegiate colleagues, conveying why their nominee is a Pro in the Profession. Additionally, Crest and Oral-B will be present at dental conventions throughout year where applications can be submitted on-site.
