“The Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award is a great way to recognize our doctors who are doing all they can to provide quality crown and endodontic care for their patients. These doctors deserve this recognition for all of their hard work and their commitment to high-quality dental care. We are so proud of them.

Dr. Samson Liu, Vice President of Clinial Affairs

When a person works extra hard and excels in something, they deserve to be recognized and honored. The same is true for dentists who keep a concentrated focus on the needs and wants of their patients while providing excellent care and treatment for those patients. For this reason, Tulsa Dentsply has partnered with Heartland Dental Care to sponsor a Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award to those Heartland doctors who truly excel in patient care and provide the best possible crown and endodontic care for their patients.

The Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award is given to doctors who meet two tiers of achievement throughout a 14-week time period. The most important requirement for qualification includes submitting case studies with pre-operative and post-operative radiographs and digital photographs of crown and endodontic cases. These x-rays and photographs are then reviewed by a clinical advisory board, much like other dental association designations. Other requirements include completing a written test and attending Heartland’s Doctor Leadership courses.

“The Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award is a great way to recognize our doctors who are doing all they can to provide quality crown and endodontic care for their patients. These doctors deserve this recognition for all of their hard work and their commitment to high-quality dental care. We are so proud of them,” said Dr. Liu.

Doctors who receive the Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award are honored at an award ceremony during Heartland’s Annual Doctor Holiday Party. They also receive professional recognition with each of their names being prominently displayed in a special frame showcased in The Institute at Heartland Dental Care, located at Heartland’s home office in Effingham, Illinois. Each doctor also receives a plaque for their own office.

Congratulations to the 2010 recipients of the Heartland Dental Care Crown and Endodontic Achievement Award! Your concern for your patients and desire to make a difference is reflected by your ongoing commitment to providing quality care through continuing education and never-ending improvement. We are proud of you and we commend you for your efforts!
