Dr. Daniel W. Fridh received the Maynard K. Hine Award on May 14 at the Indiana Dental Association 2021 Midwest Dental Assembly in Indianapolis. Fridh received the award for his work with Operation: Stand Down, a program to provide free dental care to U.S. veterans in need, and for his work as vice president of the International College of Dentists – USA Section. Through the International College, Operation: Stand Down has become a national program.

The Hine Award, created in 1985, is limited to individuals who have made contributions to the dental or health professions on a national or international program basis. It is not limited to dentists. Nominations may be made by IDA Board of Trustees members. The IDA Awards Committee selects from among the component and individual nominees for the award, which is not necessarily presented annually.

Fridh served as regent of the 7th District of the USA Section of the International College of Dentists from 2017 to 2020 and was elected in 2020 to the position of vice president. He now serves as an ex-officio member of each committee of the USA Section as well as a sitting member of the Executive Committee. Fridh also chairs the Humanitarian Liaison USA Section of the International College of Dentists. 

Fridh practices in his hometown of La Porte and continues to see patients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
