The Sunstar Foundation Awards
In 2002, the Sunstar Foundation established “The World Perio Research Award” to honor researchers and clinicians who have made key research advances in the investigation of the relationship between periodontal diseases and the health of the whole body. The Foundation is actively supporting research and educational activities that deal with areas that cut across the fields of dentistry and medicine.
In 2004, the Foundation also established “The World Dental Hygienist Awards” to recognize and encourage dental hygienists and dental hygiene students who have made important contributions to the dental community, their profession and the general public.
