Gies Award celebration


Join us on Monday, Mar. 18, 2019 for the 

12th Annual William J. Gies Awards for Vision, Innovation & Achievement




The William J. Gies Awards for Vision, Innovation and Achievement (The GiesAwards) honor the significant achievements of individuals, institutions and organizations that are meaningfully advancing oral health and dental education. The work of our awardees embodies those ideals set forth more than 90 years ago by dental education pioneer William J. Gies, Ph.D.


Founded in 2007, the annual Gies Awards gala remains a catalyst for change—to encourage new ideas, generate opportunities and tackle issues facing the not-so-distant future of dental education. It’s a platform that accelerates innovation by coalescing diverse, brilliant minds around common goals that improve people’s oral and systemic health and move our classrooms and communities forward.
Engage visionary and creative innovators who embrace disruptive technology, state-of-the-art platforms and “outside the box” thinking to bring new ideas and better solutions forward to the dental professions.
More than 655 attendees representing dental schools in the United States and Canada, plus our many corporate and nonprofit partners will join us in celebration of "agents of evolutionary change," our Gies Awards winners.
Join our philanthropic journey to promote future-ready leadership and improve oral health!
All ticket sales, donations and sponsorships help bring to scale important innovations of future awardees, researchers and educators through Foundation funding. To date, the ADEAGies Foundation® has funded more than $1.7 million in grants and scholarships to meet the evolving needs of academic dentistry.
