About the Cellerant Best of Class Hygiene Award
Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the “Best of Class” Technology Awards have grown to occupy a unique space in dentistry, by creating awareness in the community of manufacturers that are driving the discussion as to how practices will operate now and in the future. Expanding into the dental hygiene space in 2021, the selection process relies on an expert panel of dental hygienists recognized as thought leaders and educators that includes Melissa Turner, BASDH, RDHEP, EFDA, Amanda Hill, BSDH, RDH, Brooke Crouch, RDH, Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, Kristin Goodfellow, BA, RDH, Nancy Miller, RDH, BA, and Sarah Crow, RDH.
Over the course of each year, the panel members seek out and conduct research on potentially practice-changing technologies, with official deliberations taking place at the Yankee Dental Congress. Panelists are precluded from voting in any category where they have consulting relationships. The entire selection process is conducted rigorously and managed on an unbiased not-for-profit basis.
Winners are announced in July’s issue of RDH Magazine and recognized at the Under One Roof annual conference.
