University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry Department of Restorative Dentistry Faculty and Advanced Prosthodontics Residents attended the American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics 66th Annual Scientific Session in February and swept the poster presentation awards.
There were 63 individuals presenting posters, and the competition recognizes only one clinical and one research award winner. The College’s Advanced Prosthodontics program won both awards, “a truly remarkable accomplishment,” said Dr. Stephen Campbell, Head of Restorative Dentistry.
Residents Drs. Christopher Coffey and Krystle Kendall, along with faculty Drs. Kent Knoernschild, Aristotelis Marinis, and Anna Manzotti, won first place for their research poster, “Clinical Differences Between Conventionally and CAD/CAM Fabricated Complete Removable Dental Prostheses – An Objective and Subjective Analysis.”
Resident Dr. Randold Binns, along with faculty Drs. Campbell, Knoernschild, Marinis, and Ghadeer Thalji, won first place for their clinical poster, “Combined Digital and Conventional Approach in Full Mouth Reconstruction.”
“Being identified as the best clinical and research posters as part of a competition that included 63 posters is simply incredible,” Dr. Campbell said. “This is an inspiring recognition of our program, our faculty mentors, our residents, and our College.
