Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting would not seem complete without the Annual Gala & Benefit that Oral Health America holds. This year, the event was held February 22nd at Navy Pier in Chicago with a fun Broadway theme. We were more than happy to sponsor the Wine Draw.
The Annual Gala & Benefit is celebrated with more than 1,000 dental and industry professionals, representing as many as 300 companies, private practices and organizations from many disciplines. The Gala is one of Oral Heath America’s largest fundraisers throughout the year, and helps OHA support the efforts that raise awareness about the importance of oral health.
This year OHA awarded its Tribute Award to its first ever female recipient, Milly Goldstein. Milly has made a huge impact on oral health on a national level during her exemplary career in the dental industry. Among her many accomplishments, Milly paved the way as the first female president of a dental company.
We were proud to have our own Vickie Waitsman, alongside Peggy Cottrell and Karen Neiner present the award to Milly. Thanks to Milly for her contributions to the dental community and thanks to OHA for hosting a wonderful event.
