Dentistry Top 50 launch

Set to be bigger and better than ever, the Dentistry Top 50 is back for another year

It’s a new year and by now you’ve probably already broken your resolutions, so here at Dentistry magazine we’ve got an idea for you. Why not show the people who most inspire you how important they are by voting for them in our Top 50 poll?

Now in its eighth year, no doubt you know the score by now. The readers of Dentistry and visitors of dentistry.co.uk are invited to vote for the people in the UK dental profession who they feel are the most influential.

This year is slightly different, instead of selecting 10 people we just want you to pick your top 5. You may wish to vote for your boss, a valued team member, respected academics, prominent association leaders, important political figures, astute media analysts, it’s entirely up to you.

Once all the votes are in, we’ll count them up and then reveal the 50 people who received the most nominations.

Last year, well-known cosmetic dentist James Goolnik made in two in a row! The former president of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and principal of the much-heralded Bow Lane Dental Group, was your number one. But who will it be in 2013? Will James hold on to his title or will we see a new face at the top of the list? The ladies have been making their way towards the leading position, will 2013 see our first female crowned at the number one spot?

It’s up to YOU
As in previous years, we have provided a list of suggested names you may want to consider when deciding who gets your vote. This is just to get your imagination going, as always, this poll is about voting for those who inspire you, whether they’re on the list or not.

This poll is open to all readers of Dentistry magazine and users of Dentistry.co.uk. You can vote by clicking here.

The deadline for all votes is Friday 8 March 2013. No votes received after this date, either postal or online, will be counted.

Spicy
Last year we spiced things up by adding a ‘lifetime contribution’ vote. We’re continuing this for 2013, allowing you to give some recognition to the person you feel has made the most significant contribution to UK dentistry.

It can be someone still practising, retired or even no longer with us. It can also be someone you have voted for in the regular Top 50 nominations. But it must be just one name.

Who will you pick? An inventor whose product you just can’t practise without? A pioneering practitioner or daring visionary who was ahead of their time? A groundbreaking figure that revolutionised working practices, conditions or regulations? Or even someone whose contribution to the profession or industry you feel has not been given enough credit over the years?

This is just a sideline to our annual Top 50 poll, and is separate to the main event. The name of the person who receives the most votes will be revealed in the same issue as our Top 50 list.

Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing, as always, you are free to vote for the people who most inspire you – whether they’re on this list or not.
