<p> Do you know of a CDT who has given back to the profession by acting as a mentor or innovator? Do you know an amazing technician? What about a technician that serves as an example of what other should to strive to be like?</p> <p> We are excited to announce that it is time for the NBC&rsquo;s annual CDT of the Year award. From now until October 1st, the NBC will be accepting nomination forms to recognize and honor an outstanding Certified Dental Technician! Think of someone who stands out in the profession, or from your personal experiences. Maybe they encouraged you to go to school for dental laboratory technology, supported you during your CDT examinations, gave back to their community and the dental laboratory industry, offered continuing education courses, or just encouraged and supported certification. The NBC encourages you to nominate a CDT for this prestigious honor. Don&rsquo;t forget that you may nominate more than one person!</p> <p> Visit the NBC&rsquo;s website at <a href="https://nbccert.org/certificants/certified-dental-technician/enhance-your-cdt.cfm">https://nbccert.org/certificants/certified-dental-technician/enhance-your-cdt.cfm</a> to view more information and download the nomination form. Any active CDTs, active Retired CDTs (RETs),Permanently Retired CDTs, or Recognized Graduates (RGs) in good standing may submit a nomination. If you choose, you may submit a formal letter of recommendation to the Awards Committee on behalf of the person nominated.&nbsp;</p> <p> Individuals may nominate themselves, and multiple nominations can be made. Once we have collected all of the nomination forms, the NBC and the Awards Committee will reach out to the nominees to collect more information on their backgrounds and to find out how they support dental laboratory technology, certification and continuing education. While nominations cannot be submitted by dentists or other related individuals in the industry, we encourage nominees to include any letters of recommendation at this point in their submission and we will gladly review all documentation.</p> <p> By mid-December, the Awards Committee will have made a final decision on the winner and will announce it to the public. The winner of this award will be recognized in front of his or her peers at the National Association of Dental Laboratories&rsquo; (NADL) 2016 Vision 21 meeting on January 21-23, 2016 at The Mirage in Las Vegas, NV.</p> <p> Previous CDT of the Year award winners include:<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2015 - Dan R. Elfring, Master CDT, TE<br /> &middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2014 - Wilma R.
