Dr. Burton Edelstein, founder of the Children's Dental Health Project, to receive Cushing Award at the opening session of the Midwinter Meeting
Edelstein and the policy group he founded the subject of recent national news coverage
Burton L. Edelstein, D.D.S., M.P.H., children's advocate and founding director of the Children's Dental Health Project, a policy and advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., has been named the 2005 Cushing Award recipient. This award is bestowed annually to individuals who raise public awareness about oral health issues.
In 1997, Dr. Edelstein founded the Children's Dental Health Project to improve children's oral health. Since that time, he served as a health consultant to Senator Tom Daschle during development of the State Child Health Insurance Program and chaired the U.S. Surgeon General's Workshop on children and oral health. Dr. Edelstein also authored the children's section of Surgeon General David Satcher's report, “Oral Health in America,” the first report ever issued by a surgeon general on oral health.
Dr. Edelstein and the Children's Dental Health Project have recently merited coverage nationally from the New York Times and CBS national news.
Dr. Edelstein holds faculty appointments at Columbia University, where he is professor and chairman of social and behavioral sciences at the School of Dental and Oral Surgery and professor of health policy and management at Mailman School of Public Health. Prior to founding the Children's Dental Health Project, he was a practicing pediatric dentist and taught at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine for more than two decades.
The Cushing Award will be presented during the opening session of the Midwinter Meeting on Thursday, February 24, at McCormick Place's Lakeside Ballroom.
