Permanent link  Nominate a Distinguished Member now


Can you think of a colleague who goes above and beyond in service to their community? Someone whose academic accomplishments are especially impressive? Or someone whose picture belongs in the dictionary under H for humanitarian?

Now is the time to nominate that colleague for the Illinois State Dental Society’s Distinguished Member Award. This honor is given annually to a member in good standing in recognition of significant service to mankind. 

The award is made on the basis of achievement in the following areas: civic, cultural, religious, humanitarian, academic and/or professional. The nominee’s actions must reflect favorably on the profession of dentistry.

Nominations should be submitted on the Distinguished Member Nomination form, currently available online. The nomination should include a documented account of the achievements that merit consideration for the award. Any component or branch of the Illinois State Dental Society, or any individual member, may submit nominations for the award.

The completed nomination form must be received at the ISDS Headquarters Office by June 1. Questions can be directed to ISDS’s Lisa Fowler at 800.475.4737 or
