Endodontics Case Contest

Endodontics has progressed through many changes over the last years, in technology as well as materials. Bringing together universities, students as well as discipline leaders has driven this evolution and continues to do so. Therefore, Dentsply Sirona invites for an annual student case contests. 

Dentsply Sirona Asia University Endodontic Case Contest (UECC) has been one of the key platforms in Asia to identify and engage with talented dental students as future leaders in Endodontics, and helping them to develop a professional network with their peers. The contest is open to all postgraduate (Master) students and undergraduate students with experience in handling medium-high complex endodontic cases. 

The 2018 edition

The 2018 Asia Final UECC was held on October 8th, immediately following the IFEA Congress. Through individual and group case presentations, the students had the chance to present their cases to an expert judge panel under the theme of 'Master the Root Canal' with a focus on four main criteria: Precise diagnosis, complete treatment plan, correct instrumentation and proper post-endodontic restoration.  

In 2018, more than 200 Universities from 8 countries (China, Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam) participated in the local competitions, demonstrating the passion to advance Endodontics and the values of learning, sharing and striving for clinical excellence.

The winners of the Asia University Endodontic case contest for 2018 are: 

  1. First place: Dr. Chang Ching-Yi (Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan ROC)
  2. Second place: Dr. Kim Woo-Young (Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea)
  3. Third place: Dr. Vu Viet-Duc (Hanoi Medical University, Hanoi, Vietnam)

The first winner does not only receive a prize award but also the chance to present her case during the bi-annual Asia Forum in 2019. 

I was extremely lucky to have such a great honour to participate in the Dentsply Sirona Case Contest. It was a wonderful chance to exchange our clinical experience through the case presentation with these intelligent participants from Asia. I had a great time during the event. It was a memorable experience to share cases and solve clinical questions with them. Fulfilled and satisfied, I appreciated this opportunity to meet with so many amazing people. Thank you, Dentsply Sirona.

Dr. Chang Ching-Yi from Taipei Medical University
