The AAP Foundation works with periodontal program directors across the country to identify second- or third-year students to serve as AAP Foundation Student Ambassadors. These Student Ambassadors host a lunch program for their fellow residents, and present a PowerPoint presentation about the Foundation. The Foundation provides a budget for lunch, the PowerPoint, and supporting materials. If you’re interested in becoming a Student Ambassador, please contact Dana Camacho,
AAP Foundation Ambassadors are dedicated volunteers who help to educate their peers about the Foundation’s work and solicit support. They do this through writing letters, speaking at local events, hosing small information sessions, making phone calls, etc. If you are interested in becoming an AAP Foundation Ambassador, please contact Dana Camacho,
The mission of the American Academy of Periodontology Foundation is to improve the periodontal and general health of the public through increasing public and professional knowledge of periodontal diseases and their therapies, stimulating basic and clinical research to generate new knowledge, and enhancing educational programs at all levels to create opportunities in periodontal education and practice.
