Carl Driscoll, D.M.D., president of the American College of Prosthodontists presents Thomas J. Balshi, D.D.S., with The Dan Gordon Lifetime Achievement Award at the 46th Annual Session of the ACP.

Thomas J. Balshi, D.D.S., founder of Fort Washington’s Pi Dental Center and associate professor/implant prosthodontics at NSU College of Dental Medicine, recently received his profession’s highest award from the American College of Prosthodontists in San Diego. The Dan Gordon Award is presented annually to an individual who “contributes at the highest level to the welfare and advancement of the College, the specialty of Prosthodontics, science and the health professions.”

In presenting the award to Balshi, Carl Driscoll, D.M.D., president of the American College of Prosthodontists and director of the Prosthodontic Graduate Program at the University of Maryland, described the award as a recognition for lifetime achievement and stated that Balshi “epitomized the description of the Dan Gordon Award.”

The Pi Dental Center has a 30-year history of providing state of the art dental implant and restorative dental treatment, with an emphasis on excellence and expediency. The Center also includes a research and educational component and will soon launch personal mentoring options for dental practitioners in their own offices with Balshi as the coach.
