She is part of the management team that has seen the company achieve the Certified Dental Laboratory (CDL) and Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit System (DAMAS) certifications, introduced Lean Manufacturing and streamlined the lab’s many processes. One of her greatest accomplishments in the lab has been launching the Comprehensive Aesthetic Center, Knight's pinnacle all-ceramic division.
Wojdan has recently celebrated many personal achievements as well. In September, she was named in the “Top 25 Women in Dentistry” by Dental Products Report, and was named on the “Who’s Hot in Dental Laboratory Technology” list by the Journal of Dental Technology in January of this year. She achieved perhaps her greatest personal career accomplishment in May of 2011 when she was awarded the distinction of Accredited Technician by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).

She serves as Vice Chair of the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, as a Facilitator on The American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (ABCD) Members in Progress Outreach Program and participates with the Give Back A Smile ™ Foundation.
