Throughout his dental career Martin Curzon has worked with children. Starting out providing dental care to children in remote communities in Canada and later in other posts in dental schools and research institutions. It is also not generally known that he was active in Scout associations for over 40 years. In retirement he is still promoting the quality care of dental care for children and particularly through postgraduate education. As he has always believed strongly in the importance of the interchange of ideas, research and clinical experience, accordingly this EAPD Travel Award has been instigated to foster such exchanges between European Paediatric Dentists.
