Criteria for W&H Case Report Prize.

**Submission closing date 25th April 2024**


Winner will be announced at the Spring Meeting 6-7th June 2024.

Applicants must be registered for the conference by the 18th April 2024.

The case report should be structured and should detail the assessment and treatment planning options for a patient 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 who was suitable for advanced restorative treatment. The patient should require the replacement of at least one missing tooth. 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

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.
All discussions should be referenced with evidence from the literature.
The discussion of the case should not exceed 3000 words (Radiographs, photographs and references will not be included in the total word count).
A written submission of a clinical case with a substantial discussion.
The authors of the best report will be awarded at a meeting TBC; candidates should be available to take part in this meeting.
This W&H prize will take the form of a W&H hand piece presented with a certificate.
Entries should be submitted to the Prizes co-ordinator, Rachel Tabor, email:
