WASHINGTON, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In support of the

development of future dental educators, the American Dental Education

Association (ADEA) presented two dental students with the 2013

ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarship for Predoctoral Students

Pursuing Academic Careers, at the 2013 ADEA Annual Session &

Exhibition, held March 16-19, in Seattle, Washington.


Mr. Jeffrey T. Hajibandeh and Mr. Michael C. Shapiro, both of the

Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, each received a $5,000

scholarship to be applied to tuition and fees.


"Mr. Hajibandeh and Mr. Shapiro are to be congratulated for their

accomplishments," says Desi Nuckolls, Scientific Relations Manager at

The Procter & Gamble Company. "Crest Oral-B is proud to stand with ADEA

to support the careers of these aspiring academics. We wish them the

beyond a doctoral degree, and who have an interest in a career in

academic dentistry.


"The future of the dental profession will be driven by rising

generation of researchers and educators," says ADEA Chair of the Board,

Stephen K. Young, D.D.S., M.S. "This award demonstrates the commitment

ADEA shares with Crest Oral-B to support those individuals throughout

their careers."
