The Pankey Institute has named Dentistry Today Leader in Continuing Education Lee Ann Brady, DMD, president and CEO.

“We are delighted that Dr. Lee Ann Brady has accepted the position of president and CEO, adding to her existing responsibilities as director of education,” said chairman Mike Crete, DDS. “The impact she has made in such a short time is truly amazing and inspiring.” 

During the last two years, Brady led unprecedented growth at the 50-year-old nonprofit organization, the Pankey Institute reports. Under her tenure as director of education, the number of first-time participants in Pankey programs has more than doubled, attendance in the Essentials core curriculum has doubled, and attendance at the Annual Symposium has tripled. 

“With the support of the Board of Directors and visiting faculty, I’ve been able to transform the Institute’s curriculum to reflect today’s techniques and materials, as well as address the many challenges that dentists and their staff face,” Brady said. “The magic ingredient remains Dr. LD Pankey’s visionary philosophy, the foundation of our programs.” 

“After 50 years of leadership in dental continuing education, we are excited to have Dr. Brady setting our direction for the next 50 years,” said Crete.
