Zenith Dental recently announced the winners of its 2008 RDH Under One Roof (UOR) sweepstakes.
Zenith was pleased to support this year's RDH Under One Roof conference by hosting the sweepstakes that awarded two lucky winners a free trip to this year's event, which took place July 31–August 2, 2008, at the Chicago Hilton in Chicago, IL.
Each winner received round-trip airfare, paid tuition to the Under One Roof event, and a four-night stay at the Chicago Hilton. The sweepstakes was open to all registered dental hygienists and dental hygiene students who were currently enrolled in an accredited dental hygiene program.
The winners of the sweepstakes were Nancy Ferguson Brown, RDH, from Morganton, NC and Catherine Lopez, RDH, from Waukesha, WI.
Brown was extremely happy with the event. "I can't tell you how thrilled I was with my RDH Under One Roof experience. I have over 29 years experience in public dental health, with a focus on children and the community. Attending UOR inspired me with new ideas and provided me with the latest information in dental technology and product innovation. I have to say, though, the underlying feeling of camaraderie among my fellow hygienists was my biggest reward! Thank you, Zenith, for providing the opportunity for professional growth, not only for me, but for all dental hygienists."
Lopez shared the same sense of growth and camaraderie among her peers. "UOR was a wonderful experience for me. I have been a working hygienist for over five years, primarily practicing in a pediatric setting. I also temp in general practices and I volunteer at a local clinic. I had the pleasure of meeting with hygienists from all over the country. Their enthusiasm for our profession was truly empowering. I left UOR feeling challenged and motivated again. This was honestly a blessing for me. Thanks so much!"
All entries for the sweepstakes were received by May 30, 2008. Winners were selected in a random drawing on June 2, 2008, and were announced on the Zenith website and contacted via telephone and e-mail.
"Zenith was pleased to offer an easy and convenient way for hygienists who may not have been able to attend the event a chance to participate in one of the most popular and important gatherings for their profession," remarked George Wolfe, President of Zenith Dental. "The event was a three-day extravaganza of workshops, exhibits, and networking that introduced attendees to new products, techniques, and people that they may not otherwise have the chance to experience in their everyday workplace."
