2017 University Research Award


Research is the lifeblood of innovation. That’s why following the merger of DENTSPLY with SIRONA, GAC will continue to support the GCARE Research Award under the new initiative, the Dentsply Sirona Orthodontic Research Award. This annual award is designed to promote and recognize excellence in clinical or translational research with residents.

Through an anonymous judging panel, three winners each receive a cash reward, along with an unrestricted education grant for their program’s orthodontic department. All winning recipients will be recognized in person at next year’s 2017 DENTSPLY Sirona World, September 14-16 at the Venetian & Palazzo Hotels in Las Vegas, NV.
