9-28-20_Foundation_ADuring AGD2021, the AGD Foundation was able to provide oral cancer screenings to employees of the host hotel, Fairmont Austin, as well as to AGD2021 attendees. Oral cancer screenings are essential to catching oral and oropharyngeal cancer early, and early detection significantly increases survival rates.

The oral cancer-fighting organization was excited to have its selfie station featured in the New Dentist Lounge. Selfies received through the hashtag #OralCancerScreeningSavesLives are being reviewed and placed in a drawing for a $500 gift certificate toward attending AGD2022. Winners will be announced soon. 

Finally, the AGD Foundation was able to raise over $22,000 through its electronic silent auction. All auction proceeds will go toward oral cancer screenings for the public and community-driven programs that promote oral cancer awareness, screening and education.

Thank you to everyone who made the AGD Foundation's programs at AGD2021 possible, including its major corporate sponsor, 3M; supporting corporate sponsors, Dentist's Advantage and Procter & Gamble; and, finally, Henry Schein Cares, which donated supplies for the oral cancer screenings.
