SARASOTA, FL, June 05, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Donna A. Carrillo, DDS, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Carrillo celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
For Dr. Carrillo, making the decision to become a dentist was quite easy. Having ambitions at a young age to be a business owner, she realized that she had a knack for working with her hands. Coupled with her father's encouragement and advice from a school advisor, Dr. Carrillo began taking pre-dentistry classes.
A graduate of the University of Maryland, Dr. Carrillo earned a Bachelor of Science in 1975. She was active in Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority and president of it in 1975. She subsequently received a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1981. Shortly thereafter, she began her career as an associate dentist with Valley Dental in Springfield, Massachusetts, from 1982 to 1985. She then accepted the same role with the Dental Suite in Gaithersburg, Maryland, between 1986 and 1989 before operating her own private practice, titled Montgomery Dental Associates, in Rockville, Maryland, from 1989 to 2002. Notably, her practice was one of the few group dental practices in the area of Washington, DC, to be owned and operated by a woman. Dr. Carrillo also completed postgraduate coursework at the United States Dental Institute between 1989 and 1991. To remain aware of changes in the industry, she maintained a professional relationship with the American Dental Association, the American Association for Women Dentists, the Academy of General Dentistry, and Gamma Pi Delta Prosthodontics Society. In a career filled with multiple achievements, Dr. Carrillo is very proud to have created and maintained one of the most successful practices in the Washington, DC area.
Civically, Dr. Carrillo has dedicated her time as a member and Eucharistic minister at St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in Siesta Key, Florida. She is Vice President of the Windward Passage Condo Board, and a Board member of the New Sarasotans Women's Club that originated in the 1950's.
Dr. Carrillo attributes the success of her dental practice to the business knowledge her father passed down to her from a formative age. Her father, Donald Anthony Carrillo, taught her how to run a business at the age of 15, and his wisdom truly carried her through her career. As a testament to her success, she was selected for inclusion in the 18th edition of Who's Who of American Women in 1992. The proud mother of two daughters, Michelle and Christine, Dr. Carrillo is also a grandmother to three wonderful grandchildren, Nikola, Zoey, and Joshua.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to her profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Dr. Carrillo has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
