A ticket to Las Vegas is the top prize in a search for the UK’s most innovative dental student.
The 2011 BDA/Dentsply Student Clinician Research Awards is held annually and Dentsply will fly the winner to Las Vegas – the venue for the 2011 ADA conference – as part of an all-expenses paid trip.
This prestigious awards programme serves as a way to identify new talent from within undergraduate dental students.
It also supports any promising research with the potential to improve the way that future dentistry is practised.
Held in three phases, the awards programme offers dental students the opportunity to further their career and gain recognition at local, national and international levels.
Entrants compete, first within their schools, and then nationally, for the top honour, which includes the chance to present their research project to a panel on a non-competitive basis at the American Dental Association’s annual conference in October.
During the all-expenses paid trip, the winner will be introduced to a wide range of leading figures, peers and potential employers from within the dental profession – a truly unique career opportunity.
The runner-up will receive a cash prize of £500.
