About the Contest

The Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs introduced the contest to provide opportunities for students to consider ethical decision making as they prepare to start careers in dentistry. The goal of the contest is to create greater awareness of ethical dilemmas that dental students and professionals encounter and to provide a forum for students to consider how those dilemmas should be addressed using the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct (ADA Code).

Individual students, student groups or classes are asked to create video presentations depicting common ethical situations demonstrating one of the five principles, codes or advisory opinions found in the ADA Code. Entrants are required to be student members of the American Dental Association or ASDA members.

New in 2015 is a second category for videos that depict the ethical treatment of patients promoting patient safety.

Depending on the quality of submissions received, there may be one grand prize winner and at least one honorable mention in each of the two categories; each winning entrant will receive a monetary award. Winning videos are also on display at each ADA Annual Meeting and will be featured on ADA.org.
