The ADA Foundation has extended the nomination deadline for the Dr. David Whiston Leadership Award and the Henry Schein Cares Dr. David Whiston Leadership Award to June 17.

Each award comes with $5,000, designed to cover the costs associated with a leadership training program offered by the American Management Association.

The ADA Foundation created the Dr. David Whiston Leadership Awards in 2014 to honor Dr. Whiston, who has served the oral health profession through many important leadership roles, including ADA president (1997-98) and president of the ADA Foundation board of directors (2010-14).

To nominate a candidate or to learn the minimum qualifications, visit and search for the term “Whiston,” which will lead to a link for further guidelines and the nomination form.
