2013 Dr. D. Walter Cohen Teaching Award Given to Further Education in the Periodontal Specialty

Carestream Dental is pleased to announce another successful year of sponsoring the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) Foundation in support of the Dr. D. Walter Cohen Teaching Award, which was presented at the American Academy of Periodontology’s (AAP) 2013 Annual Meeting. The meeting took place at the Philadelphia Convention Center in Philadelphia from Friday, Sept. 27, to Tuesday, Oct. 1. The 2013 award winner was Jonathan H. Do, D.D.S., a graduate of the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Dentistry. Dr. Do plans to use the Dr. D. Walter Cohen Teaching Award to further his studies and aid him in his new position as a professor in UCLA’s periodontology department.

The AAP Foundation offers a $10,000 award to jumpstart the teaching career of a deserving periodontal student. The AAP Foundation hopes the Dr. D. Walter Cohen Teaching Award will encourage students to consider becoming a professor of periodontal studies and further advancing the specialty.

“The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation wants to ensure a bright future for periodontology by strengthening our future generations of students and educators,” said Dr. Robert Vitas, executive director of the AAP Foundation. “We’re thrilled for Dr. Do and know that he will put this award to good use, and we’re so happy that Carestream Dental has elected to support us in our endeavors over the years.”
