Global Clinical Case Contest

The Dentsply Sirona Global Clinical Case Contest (GCCC)

  • Worldwide contest for dental students
  • International case presentation
  • Global publication of winning cases

Since its inception in 2004-2005, more than 3,900 dental students have participated, with the 2018-2019 competition drawing a total about 1242 entries, from 134 universities.

Dental undergraduate and graduate students, with less than 2 years of clinical practice, are invited to participate (repeated participation excluded) by documenting a patient case with photographs and text.

A university should designate a tutor for its participants, and each university can submit up to three entries through its local Dentsply Sirona country organization.

A tutor can range from a dental faculty member to a post-graduate student. Their purpose will be to oversee the student’s clinical case.
