    Do you have to use Crest products to qualify for the Community Dentistry Awards? If so, how do you get them?

      Hi there. The rules and judging criteria for the Community Dentistry Awards can be found here: http://asdanet.org/awards/gc/community.aspx. Your chapter must submit an intention form and you’ll be connected with a Crest representative who will give your chapter $100 worth of supplies. Good luck and thanks for your interest!

      I love that photo :) Be prepared to see more of it around ASDA pubs…
