Dr. Hulse receives dental award
By Heather Hulse
When one of our community is honored and recognized for accomplishments on a national level, its an acheivement for all of us to share as it enriches and reflects well on the place we call home. This year our own Dr Benjamin Hulse, DDS, from Salem Smiles Family Dentistry, has been chosen as one of the nation’s top 40 dentists under 40!
On an annual basis, Incisal Edge Magazine chooses from among thousands of nominated dentists, forty that exemplify the best that the field of dentistry has to offer. Outlining this endeavor, last year’s edition described the process:
“Our profession teems with talent: Young doctors nationwide are invigorating the practice of dentistry with creative ideas, technological prowess and topnotch patient care. Incisal Edge is proud to showcase these peerless practitioners in our . . . annual 40 Under 40 – the finest young dentists who exemplify the innovative present and boundless future promise of our industry”.
Dr. Hulse described the event: “The whole event was an honor and a rush. We flew out to New York City for the photo shoot and to meet the other doctors. I’ve never been dressed by ‘professionals’, and I’m like most of us in that taking pictures isn’t the most enjoyable thing in the world. But I’ve always tried to be the best I can with each patient I see, and to be honored for that seems unreal. My patients satisfaction is still the best reward, but Im not going to lie – this whole experience was just awesome”
The 40 under 40 edition won’t be out until fall of 2014, but copies will be available digitally for free at www.incisaledgemagazine.com, as well as, we imagine, at Salem Smiles Family Dentistry. Hint, hint Dr. Hulse. And congratulations!
