Letter From Dear Doctor
Issue 10 of Dear Doctor Magazine
Endorsements are an expression of achievement
Endorsements can cover a lot of ground and meanings these days from gaining approval or sanction; placing one’s signature on a document; assigning an interest or even a clause of stated coverage altering an insurance policy.
For those of us in the healing arts, gaining recognition by one’s peers — the ones who are truly in a position of understanding and knowledge to judge, is the ultimate endorsement.
After two years, Dear Doctor – Dentistry & Oral Health magazine is proud to announce our first endorsement from the prestigious American Association of Endodontists (AAE). Endodontics, the diagnosis and treatment of root canal issues, is represented by the AAE, a professional group that is also an educational resource for the public. We are both humbled and excited by this honor. The AAE will feature regular topics on this important area of dentistry.
Dear Doctor has also been recognized by the Gordon J. Christensen Clinicians Report, a well-recognized and premier reviewer of dental products for the dental profession. We are the first consumer educational magazine to receive their recognition and, with that recognition, a great source of pride and accomplishment for the staff of Dear Doctor.
In addition, we are in conversation with other dental organizations, which represent a large segment of today’s practicing dentists, who value patient education and the doctor-patient relationship.
These endorsements acknowledge the value of providing education on dentistry and oral health to the public. Dear Doctor, who’s goal is to become The New England Journal of Medicine for dentistry is being recognized for providing evidence based information and the most current information on all topics of dentistry and oral health. We hope you enjoy our entertaining, easy to read educational content that empowers you, our patients, the public, to make informed healthcare decisions together with your healthcare providers.
Thank you to both our readers and the Dear Doctor dental professionals who subscribe to our vision of providing the ultimate in education and information.Sincerely,
Mario A.Vilardi, DMD
