SMILE Workforce Initiative Grants Now Available!


Remembering Gene F. Napoliello, DDS

In memory of Dr. Gene, last year we awarded Dental Assisting Grants as part of our SMILE grants. We continue to honor Dr. Gene and are now offering Workforce Initiative Grants in his memory

These grants will focus on establishing or expanding dental assisting programs across New Jersey and Connecticut, as well as finding ways to provide opportunities for youth to learn more about dental assisting careers.

We offer these grants to continue Dr. Gene’s quest and legacy to support our future health care leaders, in turn, creating greater access to dental care for all.
