THE wRIGLEy COMPAny fOUndATIOn AdA COMMUnITy SERvICE GRAnTS This month, I had the privilege of sitting on the Grant Review Panel for The Wrigley Company Foundation ADA Community Service Grants, alongside Drs Carmelo Bonanno, Peter Alldritt and Michael Foley. Nearly 40 per cent of Australians cannot access dental care when they need it, with the worst affected being low income, single parent families and rural and Indigenous communities. It is a sobering thought that was reflected in the words of one grant applicant, namely that “the Third World exists in Australia.” As dental professionals, ensuring access to dental care for all Australians should be a priority and responsibility for us all, which is why it was so pleasing to see the number and quality of applications that we received in the pilot year of our partnership with The Wrigley Company Foundation. It was very difficult to choose only seven recipients, as all of the submissions showed real merit, but I believe that this year’s grantees will make a direct and very real difference to the communities in which they are working. As oral health professionals, we have the opportunity to help these at-risk communities by forming mutually-beneficial private sector partnerships such as The Wrigley Company Foundation ADA Community Grants program. Please take a moment to read about the fantastic projects that received grants this year on page 9; I know that you will be as inspired by their stories as I am. AdA dEnTAL HEALTH wEEk By the time you read this, this year’s ADA Dental Health Week (ADADHW) will have come and gone. The campaign was again conducted through the efforts of the ADA’s Oral Health Committee and was a little different to the campaigns conducted previously. The Committee has sought to engage members through email and the ADA members’ website to help you inform your patients and others of the valuable services you provide to them outside of just examining and treating the dentition and of the issues relating to their mouth of which they need to be aware for ongoing good health. Media coverage has been exceptional. I would like to convey my congratulations to the Committee and those that assisted with delivery of this important national annual event. I can also commend to you the video that was prepared in conjunction with ADADHW. Professor Camile Farah from the University of Queensland demonstrated an oral health check-up and provided some valuable information on what we should be doing when performing one. This video material is available on both the website and in the August ADA Dental Files (attached to the cover of this News Bulletin). president’s comments
