Oral Health America CEO gets award

The Friends of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (FNIDCR) has recognized Oral Health America (OHA) President and CEO Beth Truett with its Outstanding Public Advocacy Award.

The award is given to those who have improved healthcare for patients and other health consumers through advocacy efforts for specific patient groups, according to a press release.

"Beth has made impressive contributions to the oral healthcare arena in her five short years at OHA," said J. Leslie Winston, DDS, PhD, director of global oral care professional and scientific relations for Procter & Gamble, who nominated Truett for the award. "The award called out specifically her efforts to impact the oral health of older Americans through toothwisdom.org and the Wisdom Tooth Project. Beth's holistic approach, from advocacy on Capitol Hill to accessible education and resources in our communities, is inspiring! These kinds of programs do not happen without the ability to bring diverse stakeholder groups together and Beth has demonstrated strong leadership in this area."

FNIDCR is a nonprofit organization focused on the importance of dental, oral, and craniofacial research.
