Criteria for Undergraduate Clinical Case Oral presentation Prize

A single undergraduate who has been selected to represent their Dental School by being voted the best clinical case will be eligible to enter this prize.

The format to present Should be a PowerPoint presentation of no more than 10 minutes.

This should be structured highlighting the undergraduates’ capability and confidence to provide optimum oral health for their patients. It should detail the assessment and treatment planning options for a patient-based outcome, as well as evidence based written discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of all potential treatment options for the patient

Each entrant should identify one patient from their practice whose treatment encompasses at least three dental disciplines. Examples of this are:

  • Periodontology (including full mouth pocket charting, root surface debridement and maintenance)
  • Oral surgery
  • Intra-coronal restorations (may include root canal treatment)
  • Extra-coronal restorations
  • Endodontics
  • Fixed prosthodontics
  • Removable prosthodontics

The patient case report should include (as a minimum):

  1. Patient details (maintain anonymity – patient initials are fine)
  2. Dental History
  3. Social History
  4. Medical History
  5. Extra-oral examination including smile line
  6. Intra-oral soft tissue examination
  7. Dental Charts including teeth and periodontal tissues (BPE as a minimum)
  8. Occlusal assessment
  9. Clinical Photographs of the patient and any relevant existing prostheses (blacking out of the eyes required)
  10. Diagnostic imaging reports
  11. Diagnoses
  12. Prognoses
  13. (Dental Implant assessment (including identified modifying factors) ) optional
  14. Treatment Planning Options.
  15. Preferred treatment option for patient.
  16. Discussion of the case

A lot of the information can be presented in standard short forms or lists (e.g. BPE scores, medical history etc.) however you should ensure that each section is clear and that descriptive detail is included when needed.

The discussion of the case should include discussion of any specifically challenging issues or modifying factors that are present. All potential treatment options should be discussed and the relative advantages and disadvantages of the options should be detailed and the reasons for your preferred treatment option(s) explained. The case discussion will need to explore the treatment options, aims of treatment that will be carried out, the sequence of any preferred treatment options that would be carried out and the maintenance requirements.
