2017 Evy Award Winners Announced

April 26, 2017 by AACD Executive Office

The AACD was thrilled to honor some of its most accomplished and dedicated professionals with Evy awards during the Celebration of Excellence closing reception on April 21, 2017 at the 33rd Annual AACD Scientific Session in Las Vegas.
The AACD Celebration of Excellence Award statuette has been dubbed “The Evy,” in honor of the late Dr. Jeffrey Golub-Evans, who was the creative force behind the award’s design.
Evy recipients are first nominated for the award by their colleagues and then are selected by the Awards and Recognition Committee. Evy award winners represent the most exemplary and talented individuals within the AACD and the industry who are dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry and to the highest standards of ethical patient care.
The 2017 Evy recipients* and their awards are as follows:

Peter Dawson, DDS — 2017 Excellence in Cosmetic Dentistry Education

Dr. Dawson has enjoyed a brilliant career that has spanned decades. He has improved the quality of the dental procedures and is considered by some to be the most influential clinician and educator in dentistry. Dr. Scott Finlay accepted the award for Dr. Dawson, who was unable to attend.

Pascal Magne, M.Sc., Ph.D. — 2017 Outstanding Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Pascal Magne pioneered a revolutionary approach to the teaching of Dental Morphology, Function and Esthetics for freshman students at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC.

Dr. Betsy Bakeman accepted the award for Dr. Kois, who was unable to attend the awards presentation.

Ray Bowen, D.D.S., D.Sc. — 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award
