The Straumann SmileAward2022 contest is open to dentists from all over the world; submit a case report (or however many cases you like) covering full-arch implant treatment procedures (all clinical on-label indications are accepted), including dental implants and prosthetic solutions focusing on the patient story and how the treatment changed her/his life. Final restoration is mandatory to participate to the award. The full-arch cases must be treated with Straumann solutions and products using the loading protocol of choice, respecting the Instructions For Use (IFU) and clinical indications.
As Straumann clearly recommends and promotes use and combination of original Straumann products, SmileAward2022 only accepts cases in which only Straumann products or products recommended by Straumann were used throughout the treatment.
Case documentation should include all relevant diagnostics and appropriate step-by-step illustrations. The submission will consist of a video case (maximum 5 minutes duration) and must be a combination of clinical images in high definition describing the case including a testimonial from the patient.
The videos can be submitted from January 14th to July 20th 2022 in an electronic format.
All video cases will be posted on the SmileAward public voting section where everyone is invited to vote for their favourite case. The jury will receive the 25 most voted cases and will select the final 8 winners who will receive their respective prizes during the EAO Congress.
The objective scoring by the jury looks at the following in each of the three areas:
- Patient story: Reflection of a patient centred approach to dental care.
- Case documentation with photos/videos and radiographic imaging covering planning, clinical procedures and follow-up.
- Presentation: Relevance and clarity of information, quality of photos/video and radiographic material and absence of use of self-promotion.
Show the world how YOU are changing the lives of your fully edentulous patients and how dentistry can give back confidence and improve the overall well-being of individuals. Create and submit your best patient story, together with the clinical procedure and the patient's testimonial by July 20th, 2022. All cases fulfilling the criteria will be submitted for public voting.
