News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin May 2011
27 MAY 2011 Funded by the Australian Government Get involved. Apply online at rahc.com.au 'This experience has shown me what I was capable of doing, and I was able to use a variety of skills that I had built up over the years from working with lots of different people from different backgrounds'. Sandra Stephenson--Dental Assistant Be part of the effort to improve Indigenous oral health ADRF's income has principally been derived from interest on invested capital and from the sale of appointment books which for many years have been used throughout the dental profession. However, as computers become more commonplace in dental practices, it is inevitable that the sale of appointment books will decline over time and reduce the income for the Foundation. Fundraising from external sources to increase overall funding is not easy and we are forever endeavouring to explore all avenues available to gain additional funding for this critical aspect of dentistry. In this regard, I do respectfully ask all ADA members for your kind consideration in giving generously to the ADRF, your ADRF. I urge you to please assist this very worthy cause and complete the insert enclosed with this News Bulletin. NEW ADRF EXECUTIVE TEAM In this new era of dental practice and research it is indeed an honour and a privilege to have been appointed as the new Chairman of the Australian Dental Research Foundation for the next four years. I would like to welcome to the Executive Committee -- Mrs Pam Clarke, Immediate Past President of the Australian Dental Industry Association, as the new Vice Chairman of the Foundation, and Associate Professor Camile Farah who is taking on the task as the Chairman of the Research Advisory Committee. I would also like to thank and welcome the four new members of the Research Advisory Committee -- Associate Professor Michael McCullough; Professor Hien Ngo; Associate Professor Neil O'Brien-Simpson and Associate Professor Hans Zoellner who along with the continuing members of the Committee -- Professor Wayne Sampson; Professor Neil Hunter and Associate Professor Kaye Roberts-Thomson are sure to provide a balanced and equitable overview of the research grants process. THANK YOU -- IAN CRAWFORD AND FRED WIDDOP I would like to acknowledge the enormous contribution of our outgoing Chairman, Mr Ian Crawford who has represented the Foundation with enthusiasm and passion and taken every opportunity to spread the word and heighten awareness of dental research in Australia. He has promoted the Foundation not only within the profession and dental industry, but also to many other associations and colleagues. Ian Crawford will continue to assist the Foundation as an Executive member and Chairman of the Fund Raising Committee. I would also like to acknowledge Dr Fred Widdop the outgoing Executive Member, and a past Chairman and bastion of the Foundation. Dr Widdop has provided dedicated service to the Foundation for countless years and mentored many ADRF Executive and Board members and always ensured the direction of the Foundation is onward and upward. His expertise will not be lost and no doubt he will still be called upon for advice. LOOKING FORWARD We look forward to the next decade of dental research and discovery with great eagerness and excitement, and the hope that ADRF can continue to support new research and developments. I again commend the work of the Foundation and encourage every practitioner to support the Foundation and keep innovation alive and drive the profession forward.
