Oral Health Giant Continues Their Support of Prosthodontic Research
Chicago (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — P&G Crest Oral-B continue their legacy of supporting the dental specialty of prosthodontics by donating a total of $80,000 in 2017 to the American College of Prosthodontists Education Foundation (ACPEF). Representatives from P&G Crest Oral-B presented the funds at the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) 47th Annual Session, held in San Francisco from Nov. 1-4. 2017.
“P&G Crest Oral-B has a long history of generously supporting the American College of Prosthodontists and our Education Foundation,” said Robert M. Taft, DDS, FACP, ACP president. “This continued support has been vital in helping us advance the field of prosthodontics through research and education.”
For over a decade, P&G Crest Oral-B has regularly supported the ACPEF, with this year’s donation being the largest contribution to date.
Evidence of P&G Crest Oral-B’s dedication to furthering prosthodontics can be found in their support of ACPEF’s Research Fellowship grant, which gives funds to promising dental scientists-in-training for research. Since 2005, this grant has helped fund over 70 research investigations in the field of prosthodontics. The support of P&G has also enabled the ACPEF to continue its mission of advancing prosthodontics through research and education.
In the past several years, the ACPEF has awarded more than $1 million in grants to advance the specialty of prosthodontics.
