Austin Oral Surgery has honored Dr. Misti P. James, the winner of this year’s Capital Area Dental Society New Dentist of the Year award, with the Dr. James R. Fricke Mentoring Award.
The Dr. James R. Fricke Mentoring Award focuses on helping the Capital Area Dental Society New Dentist of the Year award winner continue his or her education, providing the winner with a scholarship of $1,000 for continuing dental education and a scholarship to all continuing dental education courses offered by Austin Oral Surgery over the next year.
The mentoring award derives its name from Dr. James R. Fricke, one of the founders of Austin Oral Surgery who cared deeply about sharing his wisdom in dentistry with young dentists in the Austin area.
Dr. Russell Cunningham, Austin Oral Surgery’s Lakeway dental implants surgeon, presented Dr. James with the mentoring award.
"Dr. James is incredibly deserving of this award," Dr. Cunningham said. "She works to improve our community, and she’s passionate about continuing education. I can’t think of a recipient who embodies the spirit of this award better than Dr. James."
