The Wrigley Foundation Provides Oral Health Grants to Fill the Gap for Disadvantaged Australians
Tuesday, August 02, 2011
As part of the ADA’s Dental Health Week (August 1 – 7), seven volunteer community groups will receive grants from the ADA and The Wrigley Foundation to support their efforts to improve the dental care of some of Australia’s most deprived and forgotten communities.
The Community Service Grants program is designed to bridge the gap in care and encourage dentists and enrolled dentistry students to plan and implement community health programs in their local communities. This year’s grants will help place dentists in remote and rural areas, develop oral health education materials, and provide essential resources to help dentists improve the oral health of some of our neediest communities.
