Letters: DSA honoree

March 21, 2016 Dr. Peter E. Dawson is the ultimate honoree for your Distinguished Service Award ("'Complete Dentist' Dr. Peter E. Dawson Recipient of ADA Distinguished Service Award," March 7 ADA News). Not only is he the greatest dental educator of his time, but one of the most quality individuals ever to serve the profession.

His passion for sharing the appropriate information to allow a dentist his reach his or her heights of professional excellence, along with his caring for every individual that he teaches, reaches heights never seen in our profession before.

There seems to be a reason that he lives in a town nicknamed "Saint Pete." Thank you for your recognition of a man who has improved my professional life and those of many others too numerous to count. May his efforts keep improving the lives of his students and those lucky enough to be their patients. The profession is much better off because of the Grace of Saint Pete.
