  Posted by: Dental Design      30th January 2024

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) is delighted to report that the 2023 poster competition, sponsored by Colgate, was an unequivocal success.  

BSDHT members were invited to submit an abstract in advance of the OHC. The Society was thrilled to receive a total of 12 entries, 10 of which were forwarded to the final judging stage, the quality of which surpassed expectations by showcasing remarkable creativity, skill and passion for their subject matter.  All posters were prominently displayed in the hall of the Oral Health Conference Bournemouth for public viewing and attracted a steady stream of conference delegates interested in the high-quality content.  

The diversity of ideas and artistic interpretations made the judging process both challenging and inspiring. It was evident that each participant invested considerable effort and thought into their submissions, which also made the final selection process incredibly rewarding. The judging of the posters, held on the last day of the conference, attracted a wide audience.  The judges were:

  • Marina Harris
  • Simone Ruzario
  • Emma Bingham

The impact and success of this poster competition underscores the importance of continuing to support and promote initiatives that encourage creativity and professional involvement.   It is evident that the participation and engagement generated by this competition within our community is welcomed. It served as a platform to showcase the exceptional talent in our profession. The winners were as follows:
