Several years after Scott received his award, Robert Mintz received the same award for his role as co-founder of the dental mission and for his commitment to continue the mission as an annual hands on club funded service project. It should be noted that very few clubs have been able to consistently maintain projects of this magnitude for such a long period of time. Team member Dr. Edward Blender was also awarded the Service above Self award in recognition of his contribution to numerous missions. With three service above self awardees as team members, this program started by DCCR has achieved the highest level of global recognition while delivering millions of dollars of free dental care to more than 4500 of the poorest of the poor.
