Dental hygiene students are the future of our profession, and many of our new professionals are graduating with a wealth of knowledge and current research.
The new RDH Student Research Poster Awards, sponsored by Paradise Dental Technologies (PDT), provides an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of senior dental hygiene students and their presentations of current research projects. The students are recognized in two categories: original research and informational.
First place recipients in each category will attend RDH Under One Roof and present their results on the exhibit floor in Orlando on Friday, July 22, from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Exhibit Booth 735.
The first-place winners for informational poster are Brooklyn Gotham, RDH, Taylor Small, RDH, Vanessa Shafer, RDH, and Timora Sharp, RDH. The group is from Eastern Washington University, and they conducted their research on “Ozone in the ‘Dentosphere’: Ozone Therapy for Carious Lesions.”
Check out the first-place-winning original research submission, "Assessing Fixed Dental Prostheses’ (FDPs) Impact on Diet and Mastication," and watch for upcoming winners in future issues of RDH eVillage.
