Aug. 2, 2021
Dr. David Rice has been named editorial director of DentistryIQ. He replaces Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, who's becoming editor of Dental Economics.


The Endeavor Business Media Dental Group is pleased to announce that, effective July 1, 2021, David Rice, DDS, is the editorial director of DentistryIQ.

For many of our audience and clients, Dr. Rice is a familiar face with a proven professional background. He brings a passion for building on DentistryIQ’s longstanding strengths, while incorporating new kinds of content and channels to reach dentists everywhere.

The former editorial director of DentistryIQ, Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, is now the chief editor of Dental Economics. With Chris Salierno, DDS, moving on after seven years of molding Dental Economics into the number-one practice management publication, Dr. Pam will bring her new ideas and perspective. Drs. Salierno, Maragliano-Muniz, and Rice have graciously volunteered to work together for a seamless transition.

About Dr. David Rice—

Since Dr. Rice graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 1995, he’s completed continuums with many prestigious CE organizations and spoken nationally on restorative dentistry, CAD/CAM, and practice management. His most prolific training, though, has been at the school of hard knocks, he says. Nine years ago, he combined his passions for teaching and mentoring and founded igniteDDS.

Dr. Rice travels the world speaking, writing, and connecting today’s top young dentists with tomorrow’s most successful dental practices. In addition to igniteDDS, he leads a team-centered restorative and implant practice in East Amherst, New York.

“I’m incredibly excited to join the DentistryIQ team,” said Dr. Rice. “The opportunity to unite all dental professionals on their journey to excellence rings true to every core value I’ve held in my 27 years as a dentist. I’m not sure if I’m more honored to carry on in Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz’s footsteps or delighted to work with her more in her new role as chief editor of Dental Economics. I learned many years ago to surround myself with those who love to learn and love to give. Virtually popping in to so many dental lives every day is a vision come true.”

Dr. Rice had previously worked with the Endeavor Business Media (EBM) dental group, collaborating with Dr. Salierno and contributing to Dental Economics. Craig Dickson, EBM vice president and dental group publisher, said, “David brings his unique perspective based on his connection with both students and recent graduates. He has also consulted and collaborated with many dental companies to create messages that bring them awareness in the dental marketplace.”
