IADT Prize in Dental Traumatology awarded to Elaine Shore, DDUH
Dr Elaine Shore has been awarded a prize in the International Association of Dental Traumatology Case Report competition 2019-2020. She submitted a case report entitled “Unpredictable outcomes following avulsion of immature incisors”, based on patient care provided within the Trauma Clinic of the Dublin Dental University Hospital. Elaine is in her final year of the Paediatric Dentistry programme at the Dublin Dental University Hospital, Trinity College Dublin. Dental Trauma occurs commonly and appropriate early care maximises successful outcomes. Most care can be provided by dentists but a fraction of traumatic dental injuries require advanced specialised service for complex care which is provided in the Trauma Clinic.
The prize would have been presented at the World Congress on Dental Traumatology by the President of IADT, Anne O’Connell in June. Due to COVID 19, The World Congress has been postponed to June 2021 in Lisbon.
