Most Outstanding Dentist Award
Revive a Smile Founder Dr. Assil Russell was awarded the prestigious NZDA 2015-2016 Outstanding Dentist of the Year. Her work for both ICARE charity in Iraq and the people of New Zealand was recognised during the Awards ceremony which took place at the beautiful Shed 10 on Auckland's Viaduct Harbour during the opening night of the New Zealand Dental Association Conference. The ceremony was truly spectacular, hosted by NZ comedian Jeremy Corbett with live performances by talented NZ muscian Jason Kerrison. Dr. Russell was presented the award by Dr. John Boyens departing president of the NZDA who himself is an inspiration to many Kiwi dentists. Thank you to NZDA Waikato branch and Dr. Katie Ayers for the nomination. Thank you to the judging panel Dr. David Crum, Dr. Dorothy Boyd and Dr. John Boyens for the honour of receiving this award.
