WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To support the professional development of future dental educators, the American Dental Education (ADEA) presented two dental students with the 2014 ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarship for Predoctoral Students Pursuing Academic Careers. The awards were presented to Lt. Adam Bennett of the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health and Kyle Holmberg of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry on March 16 at the 2014 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in San Antonio, TX.
“We congratulate Lieutenant Bennett and Mr. Holmberg for their accomplishments and their commitments to the scholarship of teaching and learning,” says Desi Nuckolls, Scientific Relations Manager at The Procter & Gamble Company. “Crest Oral-B is proud to stand with ADEA to support the careers of aspiring academicians. We wish them the best of luck in their studies and future careers as dental educators.”
Each year with the support of The Procter & Gamble Company, ADEA presents this award to two predoctoral students who plan education beyond a doctoral degree and who have demonstrated an interest in a career in academic dentistry. A key priority for ADEA is to identify, develop and promote educational pathways that prepare students for the full spectrum of roles performed by the dental, allied dental and advanced dental workforce, including academic, research, practice, industry and public service careers. Each awardee receives a $4,500 scholarship to apply to tuition and fees as they pursue higher education and a $500 subsidy to support their attendance at the ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.
“Today’s rising generation of educators will pioneer advances that will shape the future of dental education,” says Stephen K. Young, D.D.S., M.S., Chair of the ADEA Board of Directors. “This award demonstrates the commitment ADEA shares with Crest Oral-B to support the academic careers of future dental educators who will prepare the next generation of dentists for providing oral health care for the improvement of the health of the public.”
