ADA accepts donations for Philippines disaster relief

The ADA and the ADA Foundation are accepting donations to help disaster relief efforts in the Philippines, specifically for dentists and others providing dental care in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.

ADA Executive Director Dr. Kathleen O'Loughlin, DMD, MPH, sent a letter to Dr. Fernando Fernandez, president of the Philippine Dental Association, asking that the ADA be kept abreast of immediate needs for dental services and personnel, the status of the dental community, and how oral health services have been affected by the disaster, according to the ADA News.

The foundation will combine donations and make a grant to the ADA's global affairs division, which will identify and work with a reputable nonprofit to distribute the funds. The foundation is not accepting applications for individual grants related to Typhoon Haiyan.

Donations may be made online or by sending a check to ADA Foundation, 211 E. Chicago Ave., Suite 2100, Chicago, IL 60611. For Typhoon Haiyan relief, write "Philippines" in the memo field of checks. Funds not used for Philippines disaster relief will be used for future international disaster relief.
