Recognizing a Dedicated Clinician

The Rick Canady Award honors a clinician who exudes endless dedication to both learning and teaching, who serves as a leader in the community and consistently provides mentorship value to their peers. Dr. Canady mentored many dentists in cosmetic, restorative, and preventative dentistry and established the first Spear Study Club led by a General Practitioner.

The winner will receive a physical award and, to encourage ongoing mentorship, a seat in a Facially Generated Treatment Planning workshop and one year of Spear Online that the winner can gift to a dentist of their choice.
