2017 Vern-Barnett Awards For Excellence in Dental Assisting

Nominations are now open for the 2017 Vern-Barnett Awards for Excellence in Dental Assisting.

It is time to consider nominating those special members of your Dental Team.
This is the opportunity for Dentists and staff to recognise their valued team members for their contribution made to their practice.

The Vern-Barnett Awards have been established to commemorate the contributions made by Kathy & Dr Brian Vern-Barnett to the education, advancement and recognition of Dental Assisting as integral to the professional standing of the dental health team.

We know these Dental Assistants are truly valued employees who have a strong passion for their profession and want to share it with others.
This is your change to recognise these people and acknowledge their achievements.

To nominate your Dental Assistant, complete the nomination form available from www.dapa.asn.au and submit to DAPA for consideration.
Nominations close 28th July 2017.
Each year the Dental Assistants Professional Association gives dental practices, employers and staff the opportunity to nominate a dental assistant who has done something extraordinary in the profession of dental assisting for an award recognising their excellence.

Perhaps this person has influenced a student, volunteered to help the underserved, organised continuing education courses, developed procedures to improve the workplace, been an exceptional mentor for staff or made your workplace a better environment in which to operate.

We all know these people. They are the unsung heroes, those who reach out to their colleagues and patients because they have a passion for their profession and want to inspire that passion in others.
