Ann will utilize a $5,000 grant to deliver oral health services to nursing home residents with mobility challenges
CINCINNATI, March 27, 2012 – Crest Oral-B is thrilled to announce that Ann BensonRoss, RDH, BS, of Phoenix, AZ, is the recipient of the brands' first-ever Pros in the Profession grant for "Advancing Oral Health in the Community." Together with her fellow staff at Mobile Dentistry of Arizona, Ann plans to utilize the $5,000 grant towards delivering onsite oral health services to nursing home residents who are in critical need of care but unable to obtain such services. Due to financial reasons, physical immobility of patients, and lack of proper training among staff, oral health care tends to lag behind other forms of care in nursing homes.
