UIC COD D-4 Case Presentation Competition

The Illinois Academy of General Dentistry (ILAGD) and the Academy of Dentistry International (ADI) held the 2017 D-4 Case Presentation Competition at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. The D-4 student presenters were Kelsey Brar, Kelsey Esposito, Spyridon Hasiakos, Steve Kim, Alyssa Stylski and Waseem Taraji. Drs. Cheryl Mora, Larry Williams, Theresa Lao, Sara Carroll, Sue Mayer, Scott Miller, Michael Mora, and Michael Spector volunteered to be “judges” for the event. Dr. Spector is Clinical Associate Professor in the Restorative Department at UIC COD and Dr. Lao, is a faculty member 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. The student representatives for the ILAGD Student Chapter also attended the event-Dan Pagel, Nicolae Brown, Cassie Mora, Asima Chughtai, Malik Al-Grouz and Kailyn Shultz. 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 went to dinner at Juts@Pompeii and the scholarship prizes were awarded. The third place prize of $100 was given by ADI to Spyridon Hasiakos. The second place prize of $200 also awarded by ADI was awarded to Kelsey Brar. The first place prize of $300 was given by the ILAGD and was given to Steve Kim. Congratulations to all the students on their excellent presentations and many thanks to the IL AGD volunteers who participated in the event.
