Stony Brook dental school wins first ADA Foundation Zwemer Award
Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine has won the first ADA Foundation Dr. Thomas J. Zwemer Award, a new award that recognizes and encourages dental student programs serving underserved populations outside of the United States.
Former ADAF board member Dr. Richard Simms created and endowed the award in 2012 in honor of his mentor and longtime friend, Dr. Zwemer.
The student dental team at Stony Brook will receive a $5,000 award to support its annual dental services outreach trips to rural Madagascar.
