Dr. Duello to receive the 2018 Gold Medal Award

The Greater St Louis Dental Society 2018 Gold Medal Award

The Gold Medal Award is presented to an dentist who has acheived outstanding professional accomplishments and is recognized as an individual who has devoted essentially an entire career to the advancement of the profession of dentistry.

We are proud to announce that our very own Dr. George Duello has been chosen to be honored with the presitgous Gold Medal Award at the Greater St. Louis Dental Society 2018 Installation and Award Dinner on January 27th at the Moto Museum.

We'd like to share just a small peek into Dr. Duello's journey through his career with the following photos.

Dr. Duello is an accomplished speaker. He has lectured extensively across the United States and in Europe. He has been invited to be a speaker at both the American Academy of Periodontics and the American Dental Association's National Meetings. He has been privileged to be invited to speak at many Study Clubs throughout the country.

Dr. Duello has volunteered at many community events. Such as Give Kids a Smile, a St. Louis event where underserved children are treated.

 Dr. Duello has been published in several professional journals. He is most proud of his chapter in Dr. Michael Cohen's, Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning, Vol II Comprehensive Case Studies

Dr. Duello has spent countless hours giving back to the St. Louis dental community. In fact one of his career goals has been "to raise the standard of dentistry in St. Louis". To that end he was the Director of the Gateway Study Club, a chapter of the Seattle Study Club, for 16 years. The concept of the club is a university without walls.  Eventually he created the New Horizons Hygiene Study Club as a sub group to the Gateway Study Club.

Dr. Duello's passion ultimately lies with helping his patients acheive a healthy smile. As a specialist he works with many general dentists and other dental specialities to provide the best treatments possible for each patient he sees.
