St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic selected to receive award
Congratulations to Creighton University School of Dentistry and the St. Francis Mission Dental Clinic on the Rosebud Indian Reservation on being selected to receive a $5,000 E. “Bud” Tarrson Dental School Student Community Leadership Award for the 2015-2016 school year.
The ADA Foundation Bud Tarrson Dental School Student Community Leadership Award annually highlights significant dental student outreach to vulnerable communities within the U.S. This program supports the “Access to Care” mission pillar of the ADA Foundation by helping dental student groups to provide oral health care to those in need.
The ADA Foundation received many applications this year and, through a very competitive process, selected six deserving programs to receive this award. These awards are funded by a donation from the Tarrson Family and by a generous donation from ADA Business Resources, Inc. These funds will help with costs to send students to the Mission to provide dental care. A special recognition and thank you goes to John Kum (student leader) and Dr. Don Scheidel (faculty leader) from the Creighton University School of Dentistry for their leadership in our partnership with St. Francis Mission.
