Philadelphia – Penn Dental Medicine’s Dr. Eva Anadioti has been recognized by the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) as this year’s recipient of the Presidential Citation Junior Educator of the Year Award. The award was presented as part of the ACP’s 50th Annual Session, held virtually Nov. 1-7.
The inaugural awardee for junior faculty, Dr. Anadioti was recognized for academic dentistry achievement and contributions to the advancement of the specialty of prosthodontics, science, and the health profession.
“Our awards of distinction recognize outstanding individuals in the College and their accomplishments,” said Dr. Stephen Hudis, ACP President, when presenting the award. “Traditionally, this award has gone to a more senior individual, however, personally and professionally, I am an advocate for elevating the next generation of educators and that is why I am presenting my presidential citation this year to a young junior educator who is having an impact in prosthodontics.”
Dr. Anadioti, Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Preventive and Restorative Sciences at Penn Dental Medicine, is the founding director to the School’s Advanced Specialty Education Program in Prosthodontics, which graduated its inaugural class this past summer. A diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics, she is also a Fellow in the American College of Prosthodontists and the incoming Prosthodontic Commissioner on the ADA Commission on Dental Accreditation. Dr. Anadioti, who earned her dental degree from the University of Athens Dental School, completed her postdoctoral training in prosthodontics at the University of Iowa and her surgical implant training at the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry.
