— 9 April 2018
For Immediate Release


Ms Carolyn Dean from My Dental Marketing was named Australian Dental Industry Professional Of The Year at an awards ceremony held on 24 March 2018 in Sydney.

Convened by the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers, the Australian Dental Industry Professional Award recognises individual success in strengthening either an employee’s company or the entire dental industry thus encouraging other individuals to also be the best that they can be. The award may cover activities that include, but are not limited to: Mentoring new staff; Team leadership that solves a problem / develops a new product; Service to the industry / the association; Extraordinary sales success; and building relationships with key stakeholders.

“Entries were made on behalf of professionals working within business across the dental industry, indeed a record number of entries were received this year which makes Carolyn’s success something remarkable indeed,” said Troy Williams, ADIA Chief Executive Officer.

Ms Dean was recognised not only for her technical knowledge, but also her collaborative work with industry partners and demonstrated commitment to working with regulatory authorities and dental bodies to further their member’s education.

“There are more than two hundred businesses that provide products and services to dental practices. This award places Carolyn in a special class of leader, a person who sets the standard that others can look up to,” Mr Williams said.

The Australian Dental Industry Professional Award was one of a number of awards presented by ADIA with the others being awarded to businesses, as opposed to individuals, in fields including marketing, innovation and partnership. Award entries were assessed by a panel of independent judges with the experience and integrity to ensure the dental industry's achievements are properly recognised.
