BSDHT Oral Health Conference And Exhibition 2013
As many of you will know, the BSDHT (British Association of Dental Hygiene & Therapy) held their annual conference recently, and dental hygienists and therapists from across the UK came to support and learn from the event. A great line-up of speakers were gathered to cover a wide range of relevant topics, and the exhibition hall hosted leading product suppliers and service providers.
Waterpik International, Inc. was proud to sponsor the Poster Competition again this year. Entrants each created an A3 poster presenting research into a topic of their choice. We were delighted to award our Student Prize to Connor Curran, Runner Up to Najla Aldos and Emma Fisher was our Winner.
Julia Rosse, president of the BSDHT, was kind enough to offer a few words about the Competition:
"The partnership with Waterpik International continues to go from strength to strength and I am delighted that the number of entries to this year's poster competition has again increased from 5 entries last year, to seven this year.
"Although our UK colleagues still seem to be reluctant to blow their own trumpet in the things that they can and have achieved, it is worth acknowledging that this is indeed a step in the right direction in recognising the invaluable contribution that UK dental hygienists and hygienist-therapists make in the world of dental research.
"All of these wonderful pieces of work show an outstanding contribution and level of commitment to the profession, and BSDHT is extremely grateful for the generosity and support that we have once again received from Waterpik International to enable us to achieve this.
"Indeed, one of the goals of the Society is to offer support and mentorship to those members with an interest in research and development, and this competition serves to do just that by providing a platform in which to showcase this research."
