Criteria for Gary Pollock Oral Presentation Clinical Case Prize.

 ** Submission closing date 25th April 2024**


The 3 best submissions will be asked to present at the Spring Meeting on 6-7th June 2024.

The winner will be announced at the Spring Meeting on 6-7th June 2024.

Applicants must be registered for the Spring Meeting before the 18th April 2024.

The case report should be presented in a PowerPoint presentation. It should be structured and should detail the assessment and treatment planning options for a patient as well as evidence-based discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of all potential treatment options for the patient.
Each entrant should identify one patient from their practice who was suitable for advanced restorative treatment. Ideally the patient should have a number of identified general, restorative and aesthetic modifying factors that would increase the complexity of the treatment (e.g. complex medical history, high smile line, bone resorption, occlusal challenges etc.).

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
  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

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. All discussions should be referenced with evidence from the literature.
Entrants must submit power point presentation of the case to the Prizes co-ordinator, Rachel Tabor, email:
Submission closing date 25th April 2024.

The three best shortlisted candidates will be asked to present their case for 10 minutes together with 5 minutes of questions at the Spring Meeting on 6-7th June 2024. The winner will be announced at the Spring Meeting on 6-7th June 2024.
