Canada, Alberta, Calgary - 06-12-2019 (PRDistribution.com) — Dr. Leonard Barry Smith, DDS, MSc, FRCD( C), FAAPD(life), Diplomate ABPD(life), Pediatric Dentist and former owner of his private practice, Dental Care for Children, located in Calgary, Alberta Canada, was just recently selected as Top Pediatric Dentist of the Year for 2019 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession.
The Society for A Healthy Mouth-Healthy Child (Alberta) and the Foundation for A Healthy Mouth-Healthy Child in the USA were founded by Dr. Smith as he observed significant increase in the occurrence of early childhood caries (ECC) locally. Upon further research, Dr. Smith saw that this was a problem throughout North America. ECC, which can begin as early as 9 months of age, is an infectious disease and if it is not treated or treatment is delayed, can cause serious health issues that can impact the child for the rest of their lives. Dr. Smith recognized a need to provide the public with compelling evidence that ECC was a disease that was about more than just baby teeth. As a result, Dr. Smith held awareness campaigns to teach why it is so critical to have preventive dental care from a baby’s first feeding in order to stop the occurrence of ECC.
Throughout his illustrious career, Dr. Smith has received many awards, accolades and has been recognized worldwide for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. For 2019, he is being considered to be featured in TIP (Top Industry Professionals Magazine), and is also being considered for IAOTP’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He will be honored at IAOTP’s 2019 Annual awards Gala, being held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas for his selection as Top Pediatric Dentist of the Year. For 2017 he was selected as Pinnacle Professional of the Year by Continental Who’s Who and recognized by the International Association for HealthCare Professionals and Leading Physicians of the World. For 2014 he received a special achievement award from the American Academy of Pediatrics for his distinguished service and dedication to the mission and goals of the Academy. For 2013 selected as Outstanding Professional of the Year by Worldwide Who’s Who. He has been interviewed by CUTV News and is being considered on being featured on TIP Radio.
