(Houston, TX) Forward Science, a privately held MedTech company in Stafford, Texas, announces the inaugural launch of their “Best Dentist” and “Best Hygienist” awards to deserving dental clinicians. Forward Science created this award to honor outstanding dental clinicians making a difference in their communities and providing outstanding patient care with advanced technology.

Since its founding, Forward Science’s mission to provide clinicians with technologies that change lives. This mission has remained steadfast since their inception in 2012. Forward Science manufactures OralID, an oral cancer screening device that allows clinicians to visualize abnormalities that may not be seen under traditional white light examinations. “We are in the business of changing lives here at Forward Science, but our technology can only go so far without the amazing dentists and hygienists that utilize our products every day,” says Forward Science CEO, Robert Whitman. “These dedicated clinicians help us accomplish our mission to change lives through early discovery of oral cancer with OralID. We want to honor those clinicians that are investing in technology in efforts to set a new standard of care for their patients."

After careful consideration, Forward Science has selected Dr. Lori Logan to receive the “Best Dentist of 2021” award. Dr. Logan has been in practice for 19 years and currently owns her own practice in Cypress, TX, Lori Logan, DDS. Dr. Logan gives the highest priority to her patients, and she is always looking to create individualized care to best suit her patient’s needs. She also makes sure that her team is well supported and taken care of with the needed technology, tools, and systems. She has been using OralID for almost three years and loves it. Dr. Logan states, "We were long-time users of previous technologies, but made the switch to OralID! The OralID is so easy to use, and the clarity of the images is much better." Dr. Logan has changed many lives with OralID and this award honors her hard work and many years of service.

The “Best Hygienist Award of 2021,” was awarded to Jennifer Howard, RDH. Jennifer has been in practice for 30 years and currently works for Pure Dental Brands. She currently serves as their National Hygiene Mentor. Jennifer is known to treat her patients with compassion and care and ensures they have a great experience in her chair. She is passionate about a healthy mouth and puts education with her patients as a priority. Jennifer has been using OralID for over six years and has referred hundreds of patients. "My prayer is that I saved and changed someone’s life for the better. I love that OralID has provided us a way to enhance our screenings. It is so user-friendly and our patients actually ask for it."

Forward Science opted to create this award considering the challenges individuals in the healthcare field faced throughout last year. “We are so thankful for Lori and Jennifer’s continued commitment to change the lives of their patients during this unprecedented time,” says Brian Pikkula, Chief Scientific Officer of Forward Science. Forward Science looks forward to giving out this prestigious award annually as more clinicians continue to screen with OralID.
