PERIO PROTECT HONORS DENTIST HYGIENIST WITH ORKOS AWARD
FOR EXCELLENT CASE STUDY ON GUM DISEASE TREATMENT
ST. LOUIS, MO – November 10, 2010 – Dr. Caron Glickman and Barbara Tritz, RDH of Duvall, WA are the recipients of the Orkos Award. The Orkos Award honors dental practitioners in the US and Canada who have demonstrated professional excellence in treatment for gum disease (periodontitis or gingivitis) with a case study report.
The Award was founded by Perio Protect, LLC to encourage and recognize the contributions of individual dental professionals in the fight against gum disease. According to Dr. Tanya Dunlap, Program Development Director of Perio Protect, “Orkos is an ancient Greek word associated with the ‘Hippocratic Oath,’ and with this award we want to celebrate those in the dental field who share our passion and our vision for effective, minimally invasive oral care.” To receive the award, doctors and hygienists submit documentation demonstrating significantly improved clinical outcomes for a patient after treatment.
