The ADA announced that it is accepting nominations for the Golden Apple Awards.
The awards highlight the most innovative and engaging oral health programs and activities from dental societies across the U.S., according to a press release. Two new categories, Excellence in Interprofessional Education and Excellence in Interprofessional Relations, have been added to the awards program.
In addition, in honor of David McCarley, DDS, the Outstanding Achievement in the Promotion of Dental Ethics award has been renamed the Dr. David H. McCarley Golden Apple Award for Excellence in the Promotion of Dental Ethics. Dr. McCarley was president of the Texas Dental Association (TDA) when he died in January 2015, and he also previously served on the ADA's ethics council.
State and local dental societies are encouraged to submit electronic entries between May 1 and June 1 in any and all of the categories listed at ada.org/goldenapple. Eligible programs must have been produced between June 1, 2014, and May 31, 2015.
