This year's Spring Scientific Session was held virtually on May 14-15. The Spring Scientific Session is an energizing multiday event designed for hygienists, vendors, students, faculty members and industry professionals who come together for professional development, to build their network, and to earn continuing education units. Among the many highlights of the Spring Scientific Session event is the Student Poster Competition.
Another exciting event was the Raffle and thanks to our generous sponsors we are pleased to announce that a few lucky attendees won a saddle chair from Crown Seating, two chances to receive a $250 gift card from Oroscoptic, three Hygiene Set-ups (5 instruments each), one box of Enamel Pro Prophy Paste, one box of Enamel Pro Varnish from Premier, two Oral B IO electric toothbrushes from Proctor & Gamble, and a wine basket from California Casualty.
The Student Poster Competition provides hygiene students a fun and creative way to exhibit their innovative ideas and unique talents. Through an engaging, spirited contest, students each year use this opportunity to present research and information that reflects an area of dental hygiene significant to them, to their patients and peers.
CDHA collaborates with the California Dental Association (CDA) in judging poster sessions and awarding cash prizes at the close of the Spring Scientific Session. Abstracts of the 1st place posters are published in both the CDHA and CDA journals.
