ADA Humanitarian Award nominations due Oct. 15

September 09, 2019

By David Burger

The deadline to nominate a dentist for the ADA Humanitarian Award has been extended to Oct. 15.

The ADA Humanitarian Award recognizes member dentists who have distinguished themselves by giving at least 10 years to improving the oral health of underserved populations in the United States and abroad.

Any individual may nominate any active, life or retired ADA member in good standing by submitting a nomination to ADA International Relations by Oct. 15 for consideration by the ADA Board of Trustees.

The most recent recipient is Dr. Charles F. Craft, of Lincoln, Nebraska. He is the founder of the East Meets West Dental Program, the first American humanitarian dental project to be permanently based in-country following the Vietnam War, in the process treating more than 160,000 patients and providing over $30 million of free dental care.
