Do you know of an ADA member dentist whose extraordinary volunteer efforts have made a difference in the U.S. and worldwide?


The Association is seeking nominations for the sixth annual ADA Humanitarian Award. Nomination materials must be postmarked on or before Sept. 15.

The award will be given to an ADA member dentist who has contributed to alleviate human suffering, demonstrated significant leadership, served as an inspiration to others and established a legacy that is of ongoing value and benefit to those in need both in the U.S. and abroad.

The award, one of the highest honors bestowed by the ADA Board of Trustees, recognizes individual volunteer commitment and leadership over a period of at least 10 years that has had a broad impact on oral health and the improvement of the human condition.
