2024 CDHA Student Poster Competition

The annual CDHA Student Poster Competition offers dental hygiene students an exciting and creative platform to showcase their research, innovative ideas, and unique talents. This engaging competition provides students the opportunity to present research and information that holds significance for the profession, benefiting both patients and the future of dental hygiene.

The 2024 Student Poster Session will maintain its hybrid format. Participants are required to submit a video presentation of either an Informational or Original Research poster for the initial judging phase. The top five scoring posters/presenters will advance to the Live Question and Answer Judging Session on May 17th, taking place at the Anaheim Marriott (In-person or ZOOM).
