Hear from recent recipients

Dr Terence Lau, 2022 recipient: "The bursary gave me the opportunity to attend high quality ADAVB CPD events, which was fantastic both from a personal and professional growth perspective. It was valuable to be able to continue to upskill, so that I can serve the ultimate goal of providing safe and up-to-date evidence based care for patients."

Dr Evangeline Alphonse, 2021 recipient: “We’ve used the bursary to run clinic wide training and on-site CPD, including consulting services with ADAVB Practice Plus and they’ve been outstanding. Applying for this bursary, whether you win it or not, is a great way to reflect on what you’ve achieved as a dentist and to be proud of how much you’ve given back to this profession and your community.”
