ST. LOUIS, MO – January 12, 2011 – Dr. Stephen Gordon of Dentistry at Millennium Park in Chicago, IL is the recipient of the Orkos Award. The Orkos Award celebrates dental practitioners in the US and Canada who have demonstrated professional excellence in treatment for gum disease (periodontitis or gingivitis) with a case study report.
The Award was founded by Perio Protect, LLC to recognize the contributions of individual dental professionals in the fight against gum disease. According to Dr. Tanya Dunlap, Program Development Director of Perio Protect, “The ancient Greek word Orkos is associated with the ‘Hippocratic Oath,’ and with this award we want to honor those dentists who share our passion and our vision for the most effective, minimally invasive periodontal care.” To receive the award, doctors and hygienists submit documentation demonstrating significantly improved clinical outcomes for a patient after treatment.
