The dental organization, the North American Dental Group (NADG), has gifted scholarships to five dental students as part of a 2021 inaugural program. The scholarships were awarded in June to students at the Touro College of Dental Medicine (TCDM) at New York Medical College after being chosen by faculty.

Students who received the scholarships were chosen based on student's academic career, financial need and by matching the values set out by the program, including seeking dental innovation and fostering empathy. Students were awarded financial aid as well as pairing with a mentor from the NADG network of professionals.

"At NADG, we are committed to advancing dentistry through outcomes-based practices and innovative uses for technology that lead to an exceptional patient experience and enhanced oral care," said Dr. Andrew Matta, a NADG founding partner, and chief medical officer. "It is imperative that we invest in and support the rising generation of dentists who will be counted on to continue this important work."

Scholarship recipients are E. Perry Allman of Cedarhurst, NY, Yoo Kyung Hwang of Seoul, Korea, Nayab Rizvi of Buffalo, NY; James Schmidt of Harper Woods, MI; and Steven Vu of Santa Ana, CA.

"The partnership with NADG that we have forged will be valuable for both TCDM and our students," said Ronnie Myers, DDS, dean of TCDM. "Students will have the opportunity to engage in research, learn about being leaders as they advance in their professional careers, and experience working collaboratively with an organization that truly values education as a core value."
