Crest Oral-B honors RDH's work in nursing homes

Ann Benson Ross, RDH, BS, of Phoenix, AZ, is the recipient of the first Pros in the Profession grant for "Advancing Oral Health in the Community," sponsored by Crest Oral-B.

Together with her colleagues at Mobile Dentistry of Arizona, Ross plans to use the $5,000 grant to deliver onsite oral health services to nursing home residents who are in critical need of care but unable to obtain such services.

To continue supporting the work that the Pros in the Profession year one winners are doing in their community, Crest Oral-B called for grant proposals from these dental hygienists earlier this year. Each unique application centered on a common theme and outlined ways in which the $5,000 funds would be used to improve the state of oral health within each winner's community.

Ross was selected based on her demonstration of the urgent need for financial support to help bring oral health care to nursing home residents that are at a clear disadvantage in her community, according to a company press release.

The Crest Oral-B Pros in the Profession program recognizes RDHs who go above and beyond the call of duty every day. Throughout the year, Crest Oral-B rewards a selection of professionals, nominated by their peers, who make an impact on patients and for the oral health cause.
