Dr. Mark Doherty was presented with the President’s Award for his generous support of NNOHA and shared commitment to safety net systems and the underserved of our country. Dr. Doherty is the Executive Director and founder of the DentaQuest Institute’s Safety Net Solutions program. Under his direction, the program has grown from a local pilot in three Massachusetts health centers in 2005 to a national program serving nearly 400 safety net dental programs in over 44 states.
For nearly 30 years, Dr. Doherty served as the Director of Oral Health Services at Dorchester House Multi-Service Center in Boston, where he built an FQHC safety net dental program that included several treatment sites, innovative service delivery models including specialty services, an integrated care network, and also assumed responsibility for other Boston community health center dental programs. For his outstanding work locally and nationally, and in recognition of his great vision, NNOHA is pleased to honor Dr. Doherty with its highest award.
