Top prize for dentistry graduate
6 November 2020
Recent Dentistry (BDS) graduate, Emyr Meek from Cardiﬀ University School of Dentistry, has been placed as the winner of the inaugural Art & Science of Dentistry Prize from the College and the Dental Society of Wales | Y Gymdeithas Ddeintyddol.
To enter the prize, students had to submit a referenced vlog or poster featuring their investigation, literature review or primary research into a subject relevant to general dental practice which has had an inﬂuence on the improvement of oral health care for all. The prize is for dental students in Wales, and Emyr’s submission was a poster about contract reform in Wales.
The poster explains the changes that have been made to the dental contract and the Dental Contract Reform Programme. It goes on to examine recent developments, in particular the Assessment of Clinical Oral Risks & Needs (ACORN), and discusses the impact on oral health. In a recorded online presentation made in both Welsh and English, Emyr explained the detailed information included on the poster.
Emyr will be presented with his prize at the postponed Dental Society of Wales – Y Gymdeithas Ddeintyddol Annual Study Day in 2021.
