Chicago, IL, June 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Advanstar Communications is pleased to announce the promotion of Thais Carter to Director of Content for Advanstar Dental Media, overseeing the Dental Products Report, Dental Lab Products and Modern Hygienist brands in print and online.
In her previous role as Editor-in-Chief of Dental Products Report, she helped steer the brand though a successful redesign that is now delivering more value to readers and manufacturers. Mrs. Carter started with Advanstar five years ago as the New Products Editor for Dental Products Report, and went on to help launch Modern Hygienist, serving as the Managing Editor and later, Executive Editor.
A graduate of the Columbia College Chicago magazine journalism program, Mrs. Carter wrote for and worked with several newspapers and niche publications before coming to the dental industry. She firmly believes that “covering” dentistry effectively starts with engaging dentists directly, allowing their voices and needs to shape the content we deliver and how it is delivered. Thais is based at Advanstar's editorial offices in Chicago.
Led by Dental Products Report Advanstar serves the approximately $80 billion dental market by connecting nearly 334,000* practicing dentists, dental lab technicians and dental professionals in the U.S. and Europe to thousands of dental suppliers. Advanstar's portfolio consists of four magazines, directories, conferences, custom publishing, a unique online search engine and most recently, ADA/CERP accredited continuing education products.
