The annual ADSO Awards recognize individuals and companies that contribute significantly to the association and dental support organization industry through innovation, leadership, and service. This marks the second consecutive year Thorne has been recognized by the ADSO, following his 2023 induction into the ADSO Hall of Leaders. Additionally, last year, PDS Health (formerly known as Pacific Dental Services) received the ADSO Service Award for its meritorious service, corporate social responsibility, and contributions to greater society.

“Receiving the Presidential Award from the ADSO is a true honor. It reflects our dedicated efforts at PDS Health to drive change within the health care industry,” Thorne stated. “This year is particularly significant as we are celebrating not just the 30th anniversary of our founding, but also our evolution into PDS Health, reflecting our commitment to integrating dental and medical care to advance patient outcomes. I am thankful for the ADSO’s support as we continue to innovate and lead in improving care for patients everywhere.”
