Grants Promote Oral Health Programs for Babies and Toddlers
ADA Foundation: Samuel D. Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health
The American Dental Association (ADA) Foundation provides grants for sustainable programs in dental research, education, access to care, and also provides assistance for dentists and their families in need. The Foundation’s Samuel D. Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health provides grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations whose oral health promotion initiatives are designed to improve and maintain children’s oral health through primary prevention and education. For 2013, grant funding will be considered for community-based nonprofit organizations that offer parent/caregiver education programs to prevent early childhood caries in babies and toddlers by circumventing primary oral bacterial infection before it can take hold in the baby’s mouth. Approximately 17 grants will be provided. Applications must be received by June 10, 2013. Visit the ADA Foundation’s website to review the application information.
