The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh’s Faculty of Dental Surgery, and sponsor Dentsply Sirona, have launched this year’s Dental Clinical Skills Competition across 18 dental schools in the UK and Ireland to find the best undergraduate dentist. Final year dental students will have the opportunity to showcase their clinical dental skills, their abilities to push the boundaries of dentistry and find innovative ways to provide excellent patient care. The final of the competition will be at The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh on Thursday 5th March, 2020, followed by a dinner and presentations at Edinburgh College. More information about the competition can be found at rcsed.ac.uk/skillscompdental and #DentalSkillsComp.
Vice president and general manager UK at Dentsply Sirona, Gerry Campbell, said: “Following last year’s successful Dental Skills Competition, we are honoured and delighted to continue our partnership with the RCSEd to celebrate the talented dental clinicians of tomorrow. This competition continues to bring the best out of students. Through our continued commitment to providing innovative solutions for better, faster, safer dentistry and our expansive education programme, it is our desire and privilege to support dental professionals throughout their career.”
“RCSEd launches this year’s Dental Clinical Skills competition“
Professor Fraser McDonald, dean of RCSEd’s faculty of dental surgery, said: “The Dental Skills competition is a unique competition for aspiring young dentists to attempt practical evaluations in areas not often assessed in their normal environment. It allows access to the ambiance of the Royal College and its distinctive backdrop and buildings. Friendships forged in this arena are lifelong.”
