Entries are scrutinized by a national panel of judges and then rated on a 10-point scale. In 2012, the first of Dr. Massad’s two bronze Telly Awards (receiving a score of 7.0 to 8.9 points) recognized his achievements in the Use of Animation of the instructional DVD entitled “Oral-B SmartSeries 5000.” As the producer/director of the DVD presentation, Dr. Massad illustrates his published techniques for patients using the “smart toothbrush” to clean their dental implant-supported prosthetic appliances. The second 2012 Telly Award, bestowed in the education category, commended Dr. Massad as writer/producer/director of the online “DentalLibrary” (Dentallibrary.com). Described by Dr. Massad as a labor of love that he developed and nurtured from concept to completion, this educational channel serves as the new portal for video Web-based learning of “all things dentistry." “It’s always an honor to be recognized, but this year’s awards are especially meaningful,” Dr. Massad said, noting that his entries were judged alongside those of multiple industries outside dentistry. Dr. Massad also is grateful to his youngest son who--as the recipient of 23 Telly Awards, five Emmys, and one New York Festival World Medal--serves as his video production mentor.For more information, contact Dr. Massad at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (918) 749-5600.To comment on this topic, go to community.pennwelldentalgroup.com/.
