San Clemente, CA – May 1, 2019 – Shoreline Dental Studio was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Health Products & Services category & a Silver Stevie® Consumer Services category in The 17th Annual American Business Awards® today.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. 

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Tuesday, June 11. Tickets are now on sale.

More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.  Shoreline Dental Studio was nominated as Company of the Year for the Health Products & Services – Small category, as well as Woman of the Year for the Consumer Services category.


Dr. Ritzau is proud to be awarded the Stevie® for Woman of the Year, as well as receiving high praises from the judges. She has been recognized as having gone beyond helping patients but also extending to the community with a great give back approach. “Dentistry is such an important service and mainly neglected due to people’s fear and high costs. Dr. Ritzau’s approach is admirable especially towards training her staff and giving back to the community.” Shoreline Dental Studio is recognized as Company of the year because they demonstrate how growth is to be obtained by treating your clients with respect, providing a wonderful service, and respecting your employees who help you get to that next level. “Shoreline Dental Studio has continued to grow with the goal in mind to treat patients like family.”

More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“The nominations submitted to The 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding.  They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
