Dentistry Top 50: it’s back!
The biggest campaign in UK dentistry has returned! Who will get your vote in the Dentistry Top 50?
Another new year is upon us, and with it comes an annual dental tradition – the launch of the Dentistry Top 50.
It’s the crucible where the measure of an individual’s influence within their profession is decided.
And, as a reader of Dentistry.co.uk, we want you to have your say.
How to vote in the Dentistry Top 50
Casting your vote is simple. All you need to do is pick your top five most influential names in the profession (with ‘one’ as the highest) and submit them to us through the website.
We’ve also suggested some names below. But you are by no means limited to this list: feel free to choose your own if other people have inspired you more.
Reviled by some as a popularity contest, and praised by many more as being exactly that. The Top 50 is the profession’s chance to have their say on the people who they feel hold the most sway within dentistry.
The big headline from last year’s campaign was the rise of the ‘influencer’, with personalities prominent on social media garnering a huge following that validated their approaches of making oral health an aspirational goal and driving patient engagement through technology.
The undisputed star of dentistry – for professionals and patients alike – was Milad Shadrooh. The man better known as ‘The Singing Dentist’ celebrated by taking to the stage at the Dentistry Awards to prove that dentistry and fun don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
For many he is the prime influencer – but will his run at the top of the charts continue into a new decade? We’ll have to wait and see!
Cast your vote by visiting top50.dentistry.co.uk.
