Dr. Linda Niessen, DMD, and Ms. Sara Ivey have been named the recipients of the 2004 Cushing Award. Dr. Niessen is the host of “Dental Health Check,” a weekly television segment that reaches over one million viewers each week, teaching them the importance of good oral care to overall health. The segment is produced by Ms. Ivey and supported by the Baylor College of Dentistry.
Now in its eleventh year, “Dental Health Check” has featured more than 500 dental news segments and is the only regularly scheduled dental feature in the country. It airs on WFAA-TV, the Dallas ABC affiliate, and on the Texas Cable News network.
Dr. Niessen holds a faculty appointment as a clinical professor at Baylor College of Dentistry and serves as vice president of clinical education at Dentsply. Ms. Ivey, a former news reporter and anchor, is a television producer specializing in health issues.
The Cushing Award is bestowed annually to individuals who use the media to raise public awareness of oral health issues. Past recipients include former Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher and the Shriver Family, the latter for their dedication to the Special Smiles program in Special Olympics. The award is named for George H. Cushing, DDS, MD, a prominent Chicago dentist in the early 1900's and strong advocate of dental health education.
The Cushing Award will be presented during the opening session of the Midwinter Meeting on Thursday, February 19.
