Honors: Edward Lynch
Edward Lynch (Dental) has just been elected by his peers as the 11th most influential person in dentistry, as published in the UK Journal Dentistry on May 9. He also was voted by his peers in 2015 to receive the Lifetime Contribution to Dentistry Award. He previously was voted in first place (as the most influential person in dentistry), third, fifth and sixth in recent years. In fact, he is one of the very few people to have been voted in the Top 50 influencers in dentistry since this started almost 15 years ago. Only two other U.S.-based dentists have been voted into the Top 50 in 2017 and these are Dr. John Kois (14th) and Dr. Frank Spear (27th).
Lynch has been presented with numerous other awards, including being awarded the 2010 Outstanding Achievement Award at the Dentistry Awards, which was presented by the previous president of the British Dental Association. In 2012 he was awarded the Fellowship of The American Society for Dental Aesthetics, making him the first dentist in the UK to achieve this prestigious fellowship. In 2013 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for Services to Research and Teaching at the prestigious International Association of Ozone in Healthcare and Dentistry conference in Las Vegas.
