Award of Distinction Dental Hygienists
The deadline to apply for the European Award of Distinction for Dental Hygienists has passed. The nominations are currently being judged, and the winners will be announced at a later stage. Stay tuned!
We are proud to announce that the Sunstar Foundation is partnering up with the European Dental Hygienist Federation (EDHF)! Together, we have established an Award of Distinction program for dental hygienists inside EDHF’s delegate network.
The SUNSTAR/EDHF Awards Of Distinction are established to recognize and celebrate impactful individual success stories by dental hygienists. Those success stories can be in patient care, community work, education, research; anything that has elevated the dental hygienist profession.
The Awards in a glance
The SUNSTAR/EDHF Awards Of Distinction will be organized annually. Nominations for the 2023 edition will be accepted from January 15th until March 31st, 2023. Nomination only requires written answers to a set of questions (150-350 words per answer) that inquire what you – or the colleague you’re nominating – have done to elevate the dental hygiene profession within a certain category.
Cash prizes will be offered to six awards recipients each year, plus an invitation the annual delegate meeting of the EDHF, where the winners will be celebrated.
The Awards Of Distinction are part of a larger, global awards program. Similar programs are organized in North America. Besides their objective to recognize regional individual success stories in dental hygiene, these two regional awards of distinction also act as a “qualification round” for our global World Dental Hygienist Awards (WDHA) program, as each winner will be automatically nominated for these global awards! After each edition, the SUNSTAR Foundation will be in touch with the regional winners to coordinate participation to the WDHA.
