UIC COD 2018 DMD A-4 Case Presentations Competition

The Illinois Academy of General Dentistry (ILAGD) and the Academy of Dentistry International (ADI) held the 2018 DMD A-4 Case Presentation Competition at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. The DMD Advanced Standing 4th year student presenters were James Appiah, Arati Shrestha, Carlos Chavarria, Asima Chughtai and Aliaksandr Shabanovich. Drs. Cheryl Mora, Larry Williams, Theresa Lao, Sue Mayer, Michael Mora, Ed Tobias, Ann Marcotte, Ryan Dee, Marsha Babka, and Sy Wachtenheim volunteered to be “judges” for the event. Drs. Babka, Dee, Lao, Marcotte, and Williams are faculty members at Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine-IL. Dr. Christopher Zwiercan, Assistant Clinical professor at UIC COD and Dr. Jamie Hofmeister, Clinical Assistant Professor assisted the ILAGD with choosing the students for the competition. ILAGD Student Chapter student representatives Dan Pagel, D-4 and Cassie Mora, D-3 and student member, Stephen Patterson also attended. The students presented a patient case and were judged on the quality of the presentation including the comprehensive exam, diagnosis, photography, models, treatment plan, outcomes, and their ability to answer questions. All the students had excellent presentations which made the judging very difficult. After the presentations, the students and volunteers had dinner at Pompeii on Taylor and the scholarship prizes were awarded. The third place prize of $100 was given by ADI to James Appiah. The second place prize of $200 also awarded by ADI was given to Carlos Chavarria. The first place prize of $300 given by the Chicago Component of the ILAGD was awarded to Asima Chughtai. Congratulations to all the students on their excellent presentations and many thanks to the IL AGD volunteers who participated in the event.
