Student Earns Scholarship From ADHA Institute for Oral Health


Robin J. Gordon, a Pennsylvania College of Technology student enrolled in the dental hygiene: health policy and administration major, was awarded a scholarship from the American Dental Hygienists’ Association Institute for Oral Health.

Gordon, of Duryea, was named a recipient of the Crest Oral-B Laboratories Dental Hygiene Scholarship for the 2011-12 academic year.

Sponsored by Procter & Gamble, the scholarships are awarded to applicants at the baccalaureate-degree level who demonstrate the intent to encourage professional excellence and scholarship, promote quality research, and support dental hygiene through public and private education. Applicants must also demonstrate a dental hygiene grade-point average of at least 3.5 on a 4-point scale.

In addition, applicants for any scholarship from the ADHA Institute for Oral Health must be active members of the Student American Dental Hygienists’ Association or the ADHA.

The primary focus of the Institute for Oral Health’s scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to dental hygiene students and dental hygienists who can demonstrate a commitment to further the discipline of dental hygiene through academic achievement, professional excellence and a desire to improve the public’s overall health.

Gordon is a registered dental hygienist who is continuing her education toward a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene through Penn College’s distance learning program.
