Decisions in Dentistry’s Managing Editor Adam E. Saltz, DMD, MS, MPH, was recognized as an American Dental Association (ADA) “10 Under 10.” Established in 2017 by the ADA New Dentist Committee, the program spotlights exceptional dentists within 10 years of graduating from a Commission on Dental Accreditation-accredited dental school. Honored dentists illustrate excellence in science, research and education, practice, philanthropy, leadership, and/or advocacy. Eligible candidates must be ADA members who graduated between 2013 and 2022.

A practicing periodontist in the South Portland, Maine area, Saltz currently serves as faculty consultant at Kansas City University, where he developed its predoctoral periodontal curriculum. A diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, he focuses on minimally invasive surgery, perioprosthetics, and digitized implant workflows to deliver the highest quality interdisciplinary care.

Saltz comes from a family of dentists — his father is a general dentist, his uncle a periodontist, and his cousin is a dental student. Passionate about the profession, he is currently president-elect of the Maine Dental Association, chairs multiple state and regional committees, and was recently appointed to the ADA’s New Dentist Committee. Looking ahead, Saltz has set his sights on becoming president of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), president of the AAP Foundation, and president of the American Board of Periodontology’s Board of Directors.
