The FCDSA’s National Student Research Competition invites dental student researchers to participate in a scientific poster exhibition and learn about the cutting edge dental research that is underway across the country. Professors and graduate students will judge each poster based on a pre-established grading scheme, and the three most competitive candidates will be awarded a cash prize. Overall, the FCDSA’s National Student Research Competition will give dental students the chance to interact with professors and fellow researchers, and will highlight the importance of research in advancing the field of dentistry, in hopes to improve patient centered outcomes.
