The success of the Foundation's work depends on you - whether you are a clinician practising orthodontics, a company manufacturing or supplying orthodontic products or if you or your family has benefited from orthodontic care.
What your money will buy
Through supporting the Foundation your money will be ploughed back into excellent training and research. With this money you will be investing in the future of our profession and helping people to benefit from our care for many years to come. For example:
£5,000 (five 'Cases') will enable the Foundation to fund a significant research project.
£15,000 will fund a research project employing substantial research assistant support which could identify the effectiveness of a current form of treatment.
£30,000 will fund a quality research project including a research technician and aimed at helping to identify better future treatment methods.
£30,000 will also enable a research fellowship for an academic trainee to work full time for one year to achieve a PhD after gaining their MSc. A young academic would overcome a large hurdle on the path to becoming a fully fledged teacher and researcher. Another top quality leader of an orthodontic training and research programme can emerge.
