Smiles for Life Offers New Award

Smiles for Life, a national oral health curriculum, has created a new award to support the publication or presentation of research in a scholarly format. The Smiles for Life Curriculum was created in 2005 to address a lack of oral health curricula available for primary care and other non-dental health care providers. Health care professionals of all types have opted to use this curriculum to train providers in their organization or region.

Applicants may be from any learning institution or education level and must have published or had their study accepted for publication or presentation at a conference using some aspect of Smiles for Life as the basis of the education. Applications will be accepted from graduate or post-graduate institutions of any health profession and in any professional format (poster, platform, publication) that has occurred or is planned any time during the 2016 calendar year.
