A former professional NFL cheerleader for the Cincinnati Bengals, and current “Science Cheerleader” who encourages young women to pursue careers in that discipline.
A competitive bodybuilder, actor and model who dedicates many of his runway appearances to support charitable endeavors.
A lifestyles author, and avid yogi who applies her conservative and therapeutic approaches to educate future dentists at two of the most prestigious schools in the country.
Dr. Heather Crockett-Miller, Dr. Matt Huff and Dr. Niki Fallah, described above, offer three examples of the how America’s best young dentists seem to create additional hours within each day during which they balance life with career, find creative ways to give back, and all the while achieve the professional excellence that allows them to provide unsurpassed patient care.
Fortunately, these professionals are used to a feverish pace. Incisal Edge, the leading lifestyle magazine for dental professionals nationwide, will host a two-day whirlwind event later this week in New York City to celebrate 40 of the top young dentists in the nation, including these three standouts.
Their itinerary includes face time with Forbes Editor Randall Lane, an exclusive high fashion photo experience at a brand new destination with rooftop views of the city near Madison Square Garden – Rock & Reilly’s (shown above), and a celebration of all that they have achieved thus far in their professional careers.
Published by Benco Dental, Incisal Edge celebrates dentists’ achievements both inside the operatory and during their hard-earned downtime — and nothing better exemplifies this than the magazine’s annual 40 Under 40 edition, a series of informative profiles of the finest young practitioners in our industry. Whether they’re renowned for their medical innovations, their volunteer work and philanthropy or simply their commitment to outstanding patient care, these 40 honorees— nominated by industry experts from around the country and vetted by an independent panel — represent the best of dentistry today, and the promise of even better dentistry tomorrow.
On May 5 and 6, the honorees will put their chairside techniques on hold and prepare to be preened on location by magazine staff and celebrated photographer Jeff Fried and style director Joseph DeAcetis to create a photography portfolio.
