June 12, 2015
Baltimore — The Daily Record named Dr. Leslie E. Grant among Maryland's Top 100 Women, an honor the publication bestows to recognize outstanding achievement by women demonstrated through professional accomplishments, community leadership and mentoring.
Dr. Grant works for the Maryland State Board of Dental Examiners and serves on the board of the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention.
Nearly 400 women were nominated for the statewide honor. The awards were presented June 1, and the magazine will profile the winners in a special issue of the magazine.
Dr. Grant owned a dental practice in Baltimore for more than 20 years and provided school-based public health services with the city's health department for eight years. As a college student, her interest was in speech pathology and audiology. She received a bachelor's degree in speech and hearing from Boston University, a master's in speech pathology and audiology from the University of Washington, and a doctorate of dental surgery from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.
"[Dr. Grant] not only exemplifies leadership, but she also is a passionate advocate of Maryland," said Therese Long, OSAP executive director, in her letter of recommendation. "I remain impressed by her intelligence, organizational and presentation skills, leadership, strategic vision and ethics."
