AAE/DENTSPLY Resident Awards & Winners

The AAE/DENTSPLY Resident Awards provide prizes of $1,000 to the ten highest scoring endodontic post-graduate student presenters in each category. In order to be eligible to present in this category, presenters and co-presenters must be endodontic residents at a CODA accredited institution and Resident Members of the AAE (or Active 1st Year Members if presenting research completed during residency and graduated prior year). Postgraduate endodontic presentations will be judged, unless the presenter indicates he/she does not wish to participate in the competition. There is only one award per presentation. The abstract represents 25 percent of the total score and the presentation represents 75 percent. Abstracts are scored by the Research and Scientific Affairs Committee, and presentations are scored by AAE members selected by the committee chairs.

Congratulations to the AAE19 Winners
