WASHINGTON, D.C.--In support of the development of future dental educators, the American Dental Education Association presented two dental students with the 2013 ADEA/Crest Oral-B Laboratories Scholarship for Predoctoral Students Pursuing Academic Careers at the 2013 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition in Seattle, Wash.

Jeffrey T. Hajibandeh and Michael C. Shapiro, both of the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, each received a $5,000scholarship to be applied to tuition and fees.

"Mr. Hajibandeh and Mr. Shapiro are to be congratulated for their accomplishments," said Desi Nuckolls, scientific relations manager at
Procter & Gamble.

"Crest Oral-B is proud to stand with ADEA to support the careers of these aspiring academics. We wish them the best of luck in their studies."

Each year, with the support of Procter & Gamble, ADEA presents the award to two predoctoral students who plan education
beyond a doctoral degree, and who have an interest in a career in academic dentistry.

"The future of the dental profession will be driven by rising generation of researchers and educators," said ADEA Chair of the Board

"This award demonstrates the commitment ADEA shares with Crest Oral-B to support those individuals throughout their careers."
