DescriptionThe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American Dental Association. It’s Samuel Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health seeks to improve children’s oral health. The Fund will award grants of up to $5,000 for oral health promotional programs that are designed to improve and maintain children’s oral health through community education and outreach programs. The grant’s focus is on children whose socioeconomic status impacts their access to professional oral care and adversely affects their oral health habits at home. Of particular interest are programs such as fluoride and dental sealant application programs; oral health and nutrition education materials designed for parents, caregivers, and/or child care providers; and dental health education conducted at schools, health fairs, and social services agencies, or via outreach programs. The Fund also considers programs that instruct children in the proper use of oral care products; and the development of public service announcements to increase awareness of, and appreciation for, proper childhood oral care. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
