AACD Accredited Member, Barbara W. Wojdan, CDT, Named President of Knight Dental Group
AACD Corporate Member and supporter, Knight Dental Group, CDL, DAMAS is extremely proud to announce that Barbara W. Wojdan, CDT, AAACD was named company President on October 10, 2011.
“Knight Dental Group has established itself as a high quality and technology leader in the dental laboratory industry. Barb Wojdan will help lead us into our next journey as a world leader in comprehensive dental laboratory solutions,” said Knight Dental Group CEO Warren Rogers.
Wojdan started her career at KDG, working under the direction of her father, Bob Warner, CDT. She grew her career spending time in just about every department, before she found her true love in functional-esthetic dentistry.
During her 20 years of experience, she has been instrumental in the laboratory becoming the industry leader it is today. She is part of the management team that has seen the company achieve the Certified Dental Laboratory (CDL) and Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit System (DAMAS) certifications, introduced Lean Manufacturing and streamlined the lab’s many processes. One of her greatest accomplishments in the lab has been launching the Comprehensive Aesthetic Center, Knight's pinnacle all-ceramic division.
Wojdan has recently celebrated many personal achievements as well. In September, she was named in the “Top 25 Women in Dentistry” by Dental Products Report, and was named on the “Who’s Hot in Dental Laboratory Technology” list by the Journal of Dental Technology in January of this year. She achieved perhaps her greatest personal career accomplishment in May of 2011 when she was awarded the distinction of Accredited Technician by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
In addition, Wojdan spends time giving back to the profession that she loves. She serves as Vice Chair of the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, as a Facilitator on The American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (ABCD) Members in the Accreditation Process program, and participates with the Give Back A Smile™ program of the AACD Charitable Foundation.
Wojdan will continue to work closely with Knight CEO Warren Rogers to achieve her vision for the company.
