Each spring, the members of the Academy of Dental Materials at various Dental Schools around the world present awards to the most outstanding students or student researchers in the field of Dental Materials. The award consists of an engraved plaque. For more information, go to the Academy website at http://www.academydentalmaterials.org/.
The Academy sponsors an award each year to the student in each U.S. and Canadian dental school who has been voted as having provided the most outstanding restorative care to his or her patients. The award consists of a certificate and a year's subscription to the journal "Operative Dentistry". The award is usually presented at each school's annual awards ceremony in late spring.
