Cary Family Dental is pleased to announce that Crystal Koran, RDH has been nominated for the Crown Council Members’ Choice Awards in the category of "Hygienist of the Year". The Crown Council is a multi-national alliance of leading-edge dental teams dedicated to raising the standard of dental care and becoming leaders in health, wellness, and prevention in their communities.

Koran is one of 14 dental professionals nominated to receive this award, which recognizes one hygienist among Crown Council's members in the United States and Canada who goes above the beyond the call of duty and works to make his or her practice a success. Nominees should possess "certain magical qualities that make them the very best in their profession" and who are "hard-working, caring, personable, knowledgeable, thorough, friendly, up-beat, enthusiastic, compassionate, funny, and positive."

Koran graduated from Harrisburg Area Community College in Pennsylvania with a degree in dental hygiene and is currently a part-time student at UNC Chapel Hill working towards a degree in chemistry with plans to apply to dental school in the near future. She has close to 20 years of experience in the dental field and currently serves as the Director of Hygiene Operations and Education for Cary Family Dental.

Koran is a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) and volunteers locally at Wake Smiles Clinic. In 2009, she raised $5,400 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by training and running a half marathon (13.1 miles) in Anchorage, Alaska. She has served as an evaluator for Dental Product Shopper since 2008 and has provided free dental seminars to local preschools and elementary schools for the last several years.

"It’s an honor to have been nominated by the great dental team that I have the privilege of working with," says Koran. "I am grateful to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my patients and in my profession."

The winner of the award will be announced at the Crown Council 15th Annual Event in San Antonio, TX at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in February.
