The Moloney Award, sponsored by the Dental Health Foundation, was established in 2003 to recognise the outstanding contribution made by the late Dr Joe Moloney to promoting oral health in Ireland, through his involvement as a founding member of the Dental Health Foundation and his lifetime contribution to the IDA.
