Submissions must represent original research in the area of oral health. This includes a broad array of basic, clinical and applied studies related to: strategies for the prevention of oral disease and promotion of wellness; outcomes of primary and secondary preventive care; interdisciplinary approaches to integrating oral health into general health; clinical efficacy of professional and personal oral hygiene measures; methods to improve health outcomes of compromised patients; the dental hygiene process of care; self-care strategies; disease-prevention/health promotion focused curricular models; science transfer methods; ethics and quality assurance; alternative patterns for practice; clinical decision-making; and issues related to the conduct of research.
A Certificate of Recognition and one cash award in the amount of $2,000 will be made.
