New Jersey dental students win first ethics video contest

Brett Druger and Aaron Brody of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/New Jersey Dental School are the winners of the Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs' Student Ethics Video Contest.

Their video, "Dying For Fixed," will be unveiled during the ADA annual session in the prefunction space of Ballroom A near the Registration Area.

Additionally, CEBJA members may present the video during state caucuses at annual session, and plans are in the works to post the video on ADA.org in the near future.

Earlier this year, American Student Dental Association members were invited to submit video presentations on common ethical situations.

The contest—which will be held again next year—is designed to encourage students to review and study the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct, said CEBJA Chair James F. Smith.

The video by Mr. Druger and Mr. Brody demonstrates Section 3 of the Code: "The dentist has a duty to promote the patient's welfare." They will share a $1,000 prize.
