September 2015 Volume L Number 5

AAPD partners with public relations firm Weber Shandwick to promote the AAPD Monster-Free Mouths Movement consumer campaign. In June, Weber Shandwick nominated the campaign for several prestigious industry awards, and we're thrilled to share that the campaign won the following awards:

Award of Excellence at the Silver Anvil Awards in New York City

Gold Anvil at the Publicity Club of Chicago Golden Trumpet Awards

In addition, AAPD CEO John Rutkauskas was honored June 10, at the Public Relations Society of America's 2015 Skyline Awards as Executive of the Year. He was nominated by Weber Shandwick and recognized for raising awareness of early childhood oral health care through the launch of our Mouth Monster consumer awareness campaign. He was also cited for raising public awareness of pediatric dentistry—the profession, the impact of children's oral health on overall health care and the commitment of AAPD as experts and providers.

We are very happy to see that this campaign is resonating with so many people and truly value our award-winning partnership with Weber Shandwick. Visit to learn more about the AAPD Monster-Free Mouths Movement.
