Posted May 09, 2018 11:08:33In an article published today, Medical News Online (MNN) provides a short biography of Georgia dentist George Kiproski.
He is an internationally recognized dental hygeineist and a founding member of the American Dental Association (ADA).
In a recent article, he discussed his experiences during the World War II, the Vietnam War, and the war on drugs.
He died on December 22, 2018.
George Kiposki’s award-winning work in the field of dental hygiene earned him the “Dentist of the Year” award from the American Association of Dental Hygienists (AADA) in 1988.
The AADA recognizes dental hygesthetists who have made significant contributions to the field.
In addition to the award, Kipioski received the “Bachelor of the Month” award in 1993.
In the mid-1990s, Kipsoski began working in the United States and eventually returned to Georgia, where he continued his work in dental hygiene and as an associate in the Dental Department of the Georgia Dental College.
He later became a member of The American Association for the Advancement of Science in Dentistry (AAADS).
In 1997, Kipping received the first-ever “Dental Hygiene Master’s Degree” from the Georgia State University School of Dentistry.
In 2003, Kipposki received a “Certificate of Merit” from Georgia State and received a fellowship from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
In 2010, Kiploski became a Fellow of the Board of Directors of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the National Society of Dentists (NSD).
In 2013, he was appointed to the Board for the Health Care Professional Association of America (HCPA) and a Fellow in the Public Health Service (NHSS) of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
George also served on the Board and Executive Committee of the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCOM), which oversees the nation’s medical schools.
According to his bio, Kipped began his career at age 16 and graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 1974.
He worked as a dentist for 25 years, and he has received many honorary degrees.
When he graduated from medical school, he decided to go into the field as an osteopath.
“I was interested in the history of dentistry and the science behind dentistry, and I decided to learn more about the world of medicine,” he said.
“I found that the field was very open, but the doctors were extremely conservative and did not allow a lot of new ideas and treatments,” Kipins said.
“They were very conservative.
They would tell you the best treatments to take.
So I found myself working with people that were just not cutting edge.”
Kiposkis work in Georgia was a great example of his approach.
He taught himself how to be a dentist in a very short period of time.
He continued his training at the University Medical Center of Valdosta and then completed his residency at the Georgia Medical College of Georgia.
He also attended the University at Albany and later graduated from The University of Arizona.
During his time in the medical field, he assisted in the care of hundreds of patients.
One of his most important roles was as the chief of the dental hygenic service at The Georgia Dontcha Clinic in Valdosta.
He said that he “took the pride” in doing the work well.
It was an honor to work with so many talented and wonderful people in the dental field, said Kip.
“We were all part of a great community.
They came to the clinic with great expectations and we were all ready to work.
We would do whatever we could to provide a good dental experience for everyone in the community.
For a long time, George has been a regular member of various community organizations and community service projects, including the Valdosta Dental Community Development Committee and the Valdotas Association for Dental Health.
Kipsosky, who is the second-longest-serving dentist in Georgia history, was awarded the 2018 “Denture to the Future” award by the Association for College Dental Research (ACDDR).
He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Mary; three sons and three daughters; and three grandchildren.
