The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) Foundation is pleased to announce that Curaden, USA Inc. has made a substantial contribution to support the AAP Foundation’s Patty and Paul Levi Research Award. In recognition of this contribution, the award shall be renamed as the Patty and Paul Levi – Curaden Research Award.
The Patty & Paul Levi – Curaden Research Award provides an annual $5,000 award to a predoctoral student or students doing research related to preventative periodontology and being mentored by a periodontal faculty member. The research should be associated with prevention of periodontal or peri-implant diseases. The goals of this award align closely with Curaden’s commitment to disease prevention, education, and providing “better health for you” through their oral care products and Curaden Academy.
“Prevention is close to our hearts, and we are delighted to support The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation (AAPF) with our common goal to allow everybody to have a healthy mouth and healthy body in the future.” says Steffen Mueller, Managing Director, Curaden USA.
“We as dental professionals are coaches of health for our patients. ‘Healthy mouth, healthy body’ is not just a slogan, it’s what we educate our patients on every day in practice. I am proud to be a part of this collaboration with Patty and Paul, The AAPF and the entire Curaden Family,” adds Shannon M. Nanne, RDH, Director Professional Relations and Education, Curaden USA.
Patty Levi has supported Paul for nearly fifty years in his endeavor to teach and practice periodontology. They are very honored to have this named award and feel strongly that it will enhance the knowledge of preventive dentistry and periodontology to students and to the public.
