ADAA and DANB Jointly Launch Scholarship Program for Dental Assistants



Chicago (June 10, 2013)—The American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA) and the Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB) have launched a new scholarship program to help dental assistants turn their professional development plans into reality.

The ADAA/DANB Scholarship will be awarded to dental assistants who demonstrate a strong commitment to career growth and lifelong learning. The winner(s) will be able to use the scholarship funds for professional activities, such as continuing dental education, DANB exams or certification, some expenses associated with ADAA Fellowship or Mastership, or registration for a dental conference, among other possible activities.

To be considered for the scholarship, applicants should download and complete the application and submit a letter of intent, along with any required documentation. The scholarship is open to all paid ADAA members and student members in good standing.

“As America’s largest membership organization for dental assistants, the ADAA is proud to partner with DANB to create this new scholarship program to help dental assistants take their careers to the next level,” says ADAA President Carolyn Breen, CDA, RDA, RDH, Ed.D.

“DANB is a promoter of lifelong learning, and through the ADAA/DANB Scholarship, we hope to give dental assistants the additional funds necessary to help them achieve their continuing education and professional development goals,” says DANB Board Chair Frank Maggio, D.D.S.

Applications will be accepted through August 31, 2013, and the winner(s) will be announced at the 2013 ADAA Annual Session in October.
