There is a particular prestige associated with ADEE Dental Educators Awards as the programme provides one of the few opportunities for international recognition of excellence in dental education. I encourage our member faculty to support individual and organisational applications so relevant work and service can be recognised.

Aims of the Awards Programme

To promote and reward the highest standards of learning and teaching in dentistry and within society by:

  • Encouraging good practice in the provision of high quality dental education within the non-professorial group of dental teachers.
  • Recognising the varied contribution to teaching and learning that educators can make at different stages of their career.
  • Acknowledging and rewarding dental educators by independent evaluation and recognition of the excellence of their educational contribution.
  • Promoting collaboration by scholarly engagement in dental education through national and international activities.
  • Encouraging innovation and insights into the educational experience of all members of the dental team and disseminating new knowledge.
  • Encouraging the pursuit of original research in dental education. 
  • Inspiring greater engagement and participation in the annual meetings of ADEE.
  • To support recipient's academic promotion based upon their Excellence in Dental Education.

The closing date for submission of applications is May 31st
