The monthly publication the American Dental Association puts up for its members and other stake holders in dentistry known as ADA News featured in its July 6, 2016 issue the story about the humanitarian project recently completed by the Dentistry For Every Village Foundation for the people of Pambujan, Northern Samar, Philippines.
The articles speaks of Dr. Ed de la Vega, the President of the Foundation and the story behind what made him decide to place the project, a fully equipped and stocked dental clinic in that part of the Philippines.
Senior ADA News Publishing Division Editor, David Burger wrote the touching story that the ADA News Editorial Staff found worthy as a front-page story.
Although the project was done without the involvement of the ADA and its Foundation, the ADAF, the story was published so prominently because it runs parallel with the many objectives of the ADA Foundation regarding their quest to improve access to dental care not only in the US but all over the world as well. Access to care is one of the four pillars of the ADA Foundation, the charitable arm of the ADA that provides more than $850,000 in grants each year to improve world- wide access to care.
