3 Aspen Dental practice owners named to American Academy of Clear Aligners' Board of Directors

Three Aspen Dental practice owners have been named to the board of directors for the American Academy of Clear Aligners, according to a Dec. 2 news release.

Ashley Keen, DDS, Kurt Losier, DDS, and Nathan Oakes, DMD, joined about 40 other board members, initially announced in the fall issue of The Journal of the American Academy of Clear Aligners.

Dr. Keen earned her DDS from New Orleans-based Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, where she was awarded the Allan P. Rappold Award for Excellence in Operative Dentistry and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Certificate of Recognition. After school, Dr. Keen joined Aspen Dental at its Ruskin, Fla., location and later became a partner. She received credentials as a fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and, in 2017, was "Mentor of the Year" for Aspen Dental.

Dr. Losier graduated from Indianapolis-based Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2008. He focuses on implant and clear aligner dentistry at his nine Aspen Dental offices in Indiana. He is a member of the American Dental Association and a board member in the Isaac Knapp District Dental Society.

Dr. Oakes attended Boston-based Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He and his wife, Laura Oakes, DMD, now own and run three Aspen Dental offices in southern Maine. The Oakeses were awarded with Aspen Dental's "Walk the Talk" award for leadership and fostering a positive culture of pride and commitment to education.
