Dr. Ana Botta and Her Mentees Daniella Forman and Aliza Kaye Received the 2015 New York Academy of Dentistry’s Summer Research Grant

April 2016- Students Daniella Forman (2018) and Aliza Kaye (2018), under mentorship of Dr. Ana Botta, received the 2015 New York Academy of Dentistry’s Summer Research Grant for their project: “Effect of Hydrogen Peroxide on Bond Strengths of Universal Dental Adhesive to Eroded Enamel”.  They were honored at the February 11, 2016 dinner meeting to present and discuss their project at the Union League Club in New York City.

This research was conducted in the summer of 2015 in the Department of General Dentistry and its aim was to assess the effect of 36% hydrogen peroxide on bond strengths of universal dental adhesive to eroded enamel. The project will be submitted for publication to a peer-reviewed journal in the upcoming months.

The New York Academy of Dentistry (NYAD) is an organization of dentists dedicated to the enhancement of the dental profession through the promotion of the highest standards in education, clinical practice, and ethical conduct. The NYAD allows a $2,000 award to be granted annually to Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine in support of a student research project. The submitted projects are reviewed by the Research Grant Committee of the NYAD, and the winning project is selected to represent Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine and present a poster at the NYAD meeting. 

Congratulations to Dr. Ana Botta and her mentees Daniella Forman and Aliza Kaye for receiving the 2015 New York Academy of Dentistry’s Summer Research Grant.
