AO 2018 Special Travel Grant for Young Alumni & Dental Students

AO was fortunate to receive a grant from the Claire Friedlander Family Foundation to help support the travel costs for our Young Alumni and Dental Student members to participate in the 2018 AO International Convention and Boston Regional Meeting. Applicants may receive up to $300 in travel grant funds. These funds do not include the International Convention Student Delegate travel reimbursement (set forth by the Finance Committee).
