CDT Competition: 2014 Larsen-Chu Award

New opportunity for junior laboratory technicians: funding, recognition, continuing education & travel

SCAD established the Larsen-Chu Award for Excellence in Dental Technology (Larsen-Chu Award). The purpose of the award is to acknowledge and promote young dental technicians who have less than 10 years in practice.

Applicants will have to duplicate one natural tooth based on pictures posted here: it can be done on a die or fabricated solid (root is optional), complete the application form and send JPG images of their work.

The Larsen-Chu Award Committee, Aki Yoshida, RDT (Chair), Hiro Tokutomi , RDT (Member), and Thomas Sing, MDT (Member), will review the submissions and send acceptance/rejection notice to all applicants.

Authors of accepted submissions must attend the annual meeting, and display their work. The Larsen-Chu Award competitors will receive a discounted registration rate.

The 2014 Larsen-Chu Award recipient will receive a $2,000 stipend, SCAD certificate, and complimentary registration for the 2015 SCAD annual meeting, while the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive SCAD certificates. In addition, Vita Zahnfabrik will provide a free three-day trip to Bad Säckingen, Germany for hands-on training for three awardees.
