Each year, WSDA members from across the state nominate one of their own to receive the Association’s highest honor, the Citizen of the Year Award. Steeped in tradition, the award honors the dentist who has displayed exemplary service to the community through civic/charitable activities, whether dental-related or not.
This year, rather than choosing just one recipient, the Committee on Recognition chose two: Drs. Bart Johnson and Amy Winston, the workhorse partnership behind four charitable programs in Seattle (five, if you count the staggering amount of uncompensated care they provide at their private practice) designed to create access for some of the state’s most vulnerable populations — medically-complex and challenging patients, the poor and the uninsured, and patients with cancer and renal failure.
