Final year dental students - chance to showcase talent

Final year dental students from participating universities will get the chance to showcase their talents in a nationwide Dental Surgery Skills Competition, organised by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.

Students are invited to apply through the RCSEd website, with the first eligible 25 from each school to have the chance to represent their university in the regional contests. The regional heats will be held at dental schools from October to December 2013, the winners from each heat being invited to the final at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in March 2014.

As a sponsor to the competition, Dentsply will be supplying the participants with materials they need for the skills tests such as burs, rotary endodontic files, composite material and light curing units.
