Milwaukee—June 22 is the deadline for submissions for the 2012 William J. Gies Editorial Award.

The American Association of Dental Editors and the William J. Gies Foundation for the Advancement of Dentistry of the American Dental Education Association will present the Gies Editorial Award at the AADE annual conference on Oct. 17 in San Francisco, immediately prior to the ADA Annual Session.

Awarded annually since 1958, the award is presented to the author for the editorial that AADE and the ADEA Gies Foundation have judged to be the most valuable editorial published in a dental journal or periodical.
