ATTENTION ALL FOUNDATION DENTISTS
Do you aim high, work hard and take pride in your work?
Are you eager to discover how ethical cosmetic dentistry can benefit your career?
To encourage foundation dentists to engage with us, and the educational opportunities we offer, the BACD will be awarding ONE foundation dentist the BEST CASE PRESENTATION AWARD. This will be awarded to the foundation dentist who shows the best overall case presentation, management, photography, and clinical prowess.
The award is a complimentary place at the next BACD Annual Conference, including travel, accommodation and a gala dinner ticket, and a 1-year DF1 membership of the BACD. The 2020 conference has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The next BACD Annual Conference is taking place on 11 – 13 November 2021 at the EICC in Edinburgh. You will also be invited to shadow one of our committee members (to be arranged subject to availability and location).
There are 2 runner-up prizes of a 1-year DF1 membership of the BACD.
All you have to do to stand a chance of winning this prize is to present your case in PowerPoint or Keynote format. Please note the following:
