DENTSPLY International Inc. (NASDAQ: XRAY) recently held the 55th Annual American Dental Association (ADA)/DENTSPLY Student Clinician Research Program and Reception during the during the 2014 ADA Annual Session in San Antonio, Texas. Approximately 70 student clinicians, including NSU College of Dental Medicine student Adam Saltz, participated in this year’s program representing research conducted across 39 countries.

The Student Clinician Research Program (SCADA) began during the centennial session of the ADA in New York City in 1959, as a joint venture between DENTSPLY and the American Dental Association. Today more than 5,000 students participate in this program annually, including students from 39 countries. Originally, the program consisted of a table clinic presentation where students demonstrated a new technique. It has grown immensely, with students currently presenting their research results of their clinical, basic science or public health research.

Teresa A. Dolan, D.D.S., M.P.H., vice president and chief clinical officer for DENTSPLY International, praised the participating 58 pre-doctoral dental student clinicians from the U.S. Dental Schools and the winning students from throughout the world. “It was a great honor to meet these outstanding student clinicians from around the globe. They are clearly among the most accomplished and promising students currently enrolled in dental schools from around the world, and it was a pleasure to learn more about their research projects, as well as their personal and professional ambitions. Their enthusiasm for dentistry and oral health was infectious. The dental profession is in great hands, and I have no doubt that these women and men will become our next generation of leaders in dentistry.”
