ADEA/Crest Oral-B Scholarships Support Careers in Dental Education

WASHINGTON, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In support of the
development of future dental educators, the American Dental Education
Association (ADEA) presented two dental students with the 2013
ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarship for Predoctoral Students
Pursuing Academic Careers, at the 2013 ADEA Annual Session &
Exhibition, held March 16-19, in Seattle, Washington.

Mr. Jeffrey T. Hajibandeh and Mr. Michael C. Shapiro, both of the
Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, each received a $5,000
scholarship to be applied to tuition and fees.

academic dentistry.

"The future of the dental profession will be driven by rising
generation of researchers and educators," says ADEA Chair of the Board,
Stephen K. Young, D.D.S., M.S. "This award demonstrates the commitment
