The Dental Accounting Group Business Leadership Scholarship (DAG Scholarship)



To help bring awareness to the business side of dentistry and encourage young dentists to pursue private practice ownership. We felt it was necessary to launch this scholarship initiative to help contribute towards the success of the next generation of dental practice owners, and to help counter DSO’s growing influence in our institutions and communities.

2024 Scholarship Recipient: Elliot Willis, University of Washington School of Dentistry, Class of 2024



Elliot Willis (graduating class of 2024) is this year’s recipient of the DAG Scholarship. He is a well-rounded individual that shows care and eagerness to learn and advance in the profession of dentistry. He ranks in the top 10% academically in his graduating class at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. When not studying or in clinic, he volunteers his time with local non-profits, including the Special Olympics, Everyone 4 Veterans, and the Union Gospel Mission to name a few. Prior to dental school Elliot studied business administration at Utah State University while being a student athlete. He is an outdoor enthusiast- which started at a young age growing up in foothills of the Rocky Mountains hiking, rock climbing, and camping. Elliot plans to continue his career in public health after graduation before pursuing private practice ownership. “I’m grateful to be the first recipient of the DAG Scholarship and I look forward to running my own dental practice one day after gaining more clinical experience.”
