The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh’s Faculty of Dental Surgery, in partnership with Dentsply, launched its Dental Skills Competition 2019-2020.
Regional heats for the competition ran in dental schools across the UK this autumn/winter 2019/20. During these local heats, final year dental students showcase their clinical skills with the best student from each heat winning a travel and accommodation package to compete in the Grand Final in Edinburgh.
The clinical skills task involved the preparation of a maxillary right canine tooth to receive a Metal Ceramic Full Crown.
First place went to Isabell Meyrick, second place went to Pyae Aung and Serene Lam came third.
Isabell, the Bristol winner, has been invited to the Grand Final held at the College in Edinburgh on the 5th of March 2020. The top 18 finalists, from across the UK, will be tasked to undertake a broad range of clinical procedures before determining who will be crowned the overall winner at the competition’s Grand Final Dinner. Good luck Isabell!
In addition to receiving 2 years’ Affiliation with the College, all students who registered for the competition, will be receiving discounted places on the Part 1 and Part 2 MFDS Preparatory Courses run by the College in Leeds, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
I am sure you will join me in congratulating our Bristol winners and wishing Isabell good luck at the Final competition in Edinburgh. Also, a BIG thank you goes to Dentsply and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh for sponsoring the competition across the UK annually, and everyone who supported and helped in the smooth running of the competition on the day.
