In February 2019, periodontology lost one of its greats - Dr. Mark Setter. Dr. Setter was well-loved, and contributed to the field in many ways. He practiced for 30+ years, lectured, and mentored many dentists, periodontists, and students. To honor Dr. Setter's memory, Drs. Jason Souyias, Jason Stoner, and Mitch Godat are working with the AAP Foundation to establish the Dr. Mark K. Setter Leadership in Periodontology and Dental Implantology Award. This annual $10,000 award will recognize a periodontal resident who exemplifies the leadership qualities that Dr. Setter lived and encouraged throughout his lifetime. All contributions to this award will pay tribute to Dr. Setter, and help strengthen the specialty through encouraging excellence in leadership. Please consider a gift today.
A committed group of volunteers has engaged the AAP Foundation in an effort to honor the contributions of Dr. Daniel Buser to the specialty of periodontology. The campaign to support the Dr. Daniel Buser Scholarship is live, and is on the way toward reaching its goal of $250,000. Learn more about this exciting initiative today!

Throughout our lives, most of us have had a mentor or two who has helped us become who we are today. When we look back, we realize the tremendous impact our mentors have had on our careers. Dr. William Giannobile is one such mentor. This is why the AAP Foundation, along with an enthusiastic group of volunteers, is endeavoring to establish an award in his honor.
