By DrBicuspid Staff

November 24, 2020 -- Pacific Dental Services announced that one of its Rocky Mountain regional partners, Joe Saporito, has received the Patriot Award from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) program.

Saporito was nominated for the honor by Pacific Dental Services-supported dentist Dr. Kelley Ryals, a major in the New Mexico Army National Guard and that state's dental officer. The award recognizes support for employee participation in the National Guard and Reserve force, according to the firm.

Launched in 1972, ESGR was created to promote "cooperation and understanding between reserve component service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment," Pacific Dental Services said in a statement.
