The Dental Health Foundation supports the work of those working in special care dentistry through its Annual Bursary Awards to the Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health

This year we were delighted to present Dr Danielle McKeown with an award for her presentation on 'The effects of waiting lists on oral health changes for a special care population. Does being placed on a waiting list lead to harm for Special Care Patients?' at the ISDH Annual Conference in the Convention Centre on June 22nd. Dr McKeown will travel to the International Association for Dental Health Congress 2012 in Melbourne, Australia at the end of Ocober to present her research and we wish her all the best.

Ms Evelyn Lawless won her second DHF Bursary Award at the conference, this time for work on the 'Oral Health of Infirm Elderly Patients' and we congratulate Ms Lawless on her double success.
