IFDH Social Responsibility Program:

Start a Project or Submit Your Project for an Award!
Project Submission Deadline:  
February 1st, 2024.

The IFDH is looking for submissions for the IFDH Social Responsibility Program and the deadline is fast approaching. Are you or any colleagues doing any outreach? Please take a look at our program and consider submitting an application.

In collaboration with corporate sponsor Dentsply Sirona, the IFDH seeks to recognize and award exceptional social responsibility projects during a special session at the IFDH International Symposium on Dental Hygiene (ISDH) in Seoul, Korea, in July 2024. This offers an invaluable platform to spotlight the influence of these projects and inspire the broader dental hygiene community to foster lasting improvements in oral health practices.

Do You Know Someone Who Should Apply for Our Innovation Awards?

An exciting, new IFDH Innovation Awards program, sponsored by Haleon, will recognize innovative Dental Hygienists and Therapists, with a focus on technology and treatment. The awards will recognize you, or someone you know, who is:

  • Developing new approaches or equipment for achieving optimal oral health; or
  • Bringing new treatments or products to the oral health community to enable our colleagues to help their clients/patients achieve a healthy mouth.

Whether as a solo researcher/developer, educator, or as part of a team, Haleon and IFDH want to recognize the innovators in our midst.
