ADA Council on Scientific Affairs names recipient of first John W. Stanford New Investigator Award

The American Dental Association (ADA) Council on Scientific Affairs has named Noor Obaisi, DDS, MS, as the recipient of its first John W. Stanford New Investigator Award. Dr. Obaisi, who completed an orthodontic residency program at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry in May 2013, works in private practice in Chicago.

Dr. Obaisi will present her winning research project, "Determination of the Transformation Temperature Ranges of Orthodontic Nickel-Titanium Archwires," at the March 9-11, 2015, ADA Standards Committee on Dental Products annual meeting in Charlotte, N.C.

The John W. Stanford New Investigator Award honors the legacy of Dr. Stanford who is credited with establishing the ADA's current standards program. Dr. Stanford died in February 2011. He was a 40-year ADA employee and played a pivotal part in standards setting and development.

The Stanford New Investigator Award underscores the crucial role that dental standards play in patient health and safety and in the efficacy of dental products while paying homage to Dr. Stanford's contribution.

Applications for the Stanford New Investigator Award are accepted annually from dental students or dentists who have earned their DDS or DMD degrees no more than five years prior to the time of selection. Submissions must be original research that addresses some aspect of the use of standards in dental research or clinical application. Applications are being accepted through Sept. 30 for the 2014 award. To apply for the John W. Stanford New Investigator Award or learn more about the ADA Standards Programs, please visit the ADA website.
