Charlestown’s largest dental practice, Arrowhead Dental, announced that co-founder Dr. Christine Benoit has been honored by the International College of Dentists for her body of work in advancing the art and science of dentistry. Here is Arrowhead’s statement: 

We would like to congratulate our very own Dr. Christine Benoit for the most prestigious honor of being elected a Master of the International College of Dentists (ICD). The International College of Dentists is the Preeminent Global Dental Honor Society recognizing outstanding professional achievement and meritorious service while advocating for Humanitarian and Educational Initiatives. 

This Master Fellowship recognizes Dr. Benoit's distinguished achievements in the art and science of dentistry, her eminent contributions to the dental profession, and appreciates her outstanding services rendered to the College over the span of two decades.
