The 2015 Award was presented in Washington D.C. at the PFA Annual Awards luncheon concurrent with the American Dental Association Sessions in recognition of the company’s ‘service and merit to the profession and community, well above recognized standards’.
PFA President, Dr. Karyn Stockwell cited Straumann for “outstanding contributions ensuring the highest standards of care for our patients. Straumann’s commitment to ongoing clinical research and contributing to communities through outreach to developing regions, ongoing commitment to Ectodermal Dysplasia patients, the Young Professional Award in Regenerative Dentistry and the Straumann AID charitable program have exemplified the mission of the Pierre Fauchard Academy by providing excellence in research, public service, education and leadership development in oral healthcare worldwide.”
“It is a great encouragement to receive recognition for things that often go unseen and unnoticed”, said Marco Gadola, CEO of Straumann. “we share it with countless unseen dentists and colleagues whose selfless support is an essential part of our efforts to enhance patient care and to give smiles to the less privileged. We sincerely thank them and the Pierre Fauchard Academy”.
