January 10, 2017 -- The ADA has named Usa Bunnag, DDS, as the winner of the 2017 ADA Humanitarian Award.

Dr. Bunnag also founded Smiles on Wings, a nonprofit focused on improving health and wellness in underserved communities. Through her nonprofit, Dr. Bunnag takes biannual trips to Thailand, where she lived until she was 14 years old, to provide dental care. In 2014, Smiles on Wings built a permanent dental clinic in a Thailand community that was devastated by a 2004 tsunami.

The ADA will recognize Dr. Bunnag at its 2017 annual meeting, which will take place in October in Atlanta. She will also receive a $10,000 donation to the charity of her choice.
