Edward Lynch, voted the top most influential figure within UK dentistry in our Top 50 poll, has scooped another award.
Dr Lynch is head of Warwick Dentistry, part of Warwick Medical School, and has been honoured with accredited membership of the prestigious American Society for Dental Aesthetics (ASDA).
Fewer than 200 educators, innovators and practitioners worldwide have received this distinguished accredited membership since ASDA was established in 1976, when it became the first aesthetic dental association in the world.
Throughout its 34 year history, the association has sought to raise awareness of this specialised area of dentistry by showcasing those experts who are able to share the best and most innovative techniques, newest technologies and most comprehensive educational formats.
Edward says: ‘I’m delighted to receive the honour of this prestigious accreditation and hope that it allows us to continue to raise awareness about the excellent and innovative dental education and research we provide in Warwick Dentistry at Warwick Medical School.
‘We are building a team of world-class academics in Warwick Dentistry and we aim to be a world-leading postgraduate unit, internationally renowned for our high quality and relevance of our education programmes and for the excellence and significance of our research. The Guardian June 2010 rankings placed the University of Warwick as the third best university in the UK and I am very proud to be working here.’
To mark his membership, Edward was asked to give the prestigious keynote address at the annual ASDA congress in San Antonio, Texas.
ASDA introduced his keynote address by recognising his efforts in the development of education and research in dentistry and for his many achievements and contributions to the profession, appearance related dentistry, dental education and research.
He was also voted by his peers in April 2010 as this year’s most influential person in UK dentistry.
