Terry Reynolds Trailblazer Award

The Terry Reynolds Trailblazer Award was created to recognize Dr. Reynolds’ vast contributions to the profession of implant dentistry.

Dr. Reynolds conceptualized, developed, and founded the AAID MaxiCourse®, which has become the

gold standard for implant education and is trademarked by the AAID. He was the first MaxiCourse director and, in 1998, became the first African American to serve as AAID president.

The award recognizes an AAID credentialed member who epitomizes the spirit of Dr. Reynolds’ work through:

  • Demonstrating leadership in implant dentistry
  • Achieving accomplishments and accolades as an innovative educator in the art and science of implant dentistry
  • Embodying the spirit of inclusion, outreach, and selfless service through humanitarian efforts within the dental community, fostering training, knowledge, and compassion for better patient care worldwide

*Nominations for the 2024 Terry Reynolds Trailblazer Award closed on May 3, 2024.
