Institute for Oral Health

Our Impact

Watch the Institute for Oral Health’s Advisory Committee Chair, Pamela Quinones talk about the Wrigley Company Foundation Community Service Grants from the Institute!


On Supporting Dental Hygienists to reach their full professional potential:

“Not only are we able to do preventive services but in states that allow it, we are able to do restorative services too"

On Empowering Dental Hygienists to improve the public’s oral health:

“We [Institute for Oral Health] really want, at a very young age and the older population to really embrace prevention so that’s one of the reasons IOH came up with these [community service] grants. These grants are for hygienists to give back to their communities and the underserved in this country”

Scholarships

ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health Scholarship Program offers financial assistance to dental hygiene students and dental hygienists who demonstrate a commitment to advance the discipline of dental hygiene.
