Prichard Award

The 2020 John F. Prichard Graduate Research Competition was an outstanding success once again. Fourteen abstracts were submitted from the University of Colorado, University of Colorado at Denver, Air Force Postgraduate Dental School, Louisiana State University, Texas A & M College of Dentistry, University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston, University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, and UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry.

Eleven judges, one for each residency program as well as three clinical judges, participated in the scoring of the abstracts. Based on this review, six abstracts were selected for oral presentation.

On January 24, 2020, nine judges heard oral presentations of the selected abstracts. The winner of the Prichard Competition in the Clinical Sciences Research Category was Dr. Arwa Al-Hugail from UT Health San Antonio. The winner of the Prichard Competition in the Basic Sciences Research Category was Dr. Matthew Saxon with the Texas A&M University College of Dentistry.

Congratulations to Dr. Al-Hugail and Dr. Saxon as well as to the other four presenters.

The awards were presented on January 25th during the SWSP Business Meeting. Procter & Gamble and Straumann was recognized for their support of the competition. The 2020 competition once again demonstrated the exceptional research being conducted within the residency program within the Society. The written abstracts and oral presentations were outstanding. Many thanks to the Judges for their time and willingness to participate in this year’s competition.

The purpose of the Prichard Award is to establish, maintain, and encourage participation in scientific presentations to fulfill the mission and goals of the Society and honor the memory of Dr. John F. Prichard. For anyone interested in participating, learn more about the guidelines for participation at http://www.swsp.org/prichard-award-guidelines.
