2010 Dental Student Ethics Video Contest winners named

A group of students from the University of Washington School of Dentistry received the grand prize in the Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs’ 2010 Student Ethics Video Contest.

UW’s Phillip Cronin, Blake Hillstead and Brad Jonnes won the award for their video, “Dentethics”—garnering each of them a share of the $2,000 prize.

Honorable mention honors went to Columbia University College of Dental Medicine’s Kei Chan, Hai Do and Levon Sukiasian, who will share $1,000 in prize money for their video “Once Upon a Time There Was a Poor Dentist.”

The videos will be displayed in a continuous loop Saturday through Monday during registration hours (7 a.m.-5:30 p.m.) in the Wi-Fi Lounge in the ADA Pavilion and the Welcome Center on the Exhibit Level of the Convention Center.

CEBJA began the Student Ethics Video Contest to increase awareness of ethical dilemmas dental students and professionals encounter and provide a forum for dental students to consider how those dilemmas should be addressed using the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct (ADA Code).

The grand prize video “Dentethics” illustrates the five fundamental principles of the ADA Code: Patient Autonomy, Nonmaleficence, Beneficence, Justice and Veracity. “Once Upon a Time There Was a Poor Dentist” focuses on ADA Code principles of Patient Autonomy and Veracity.
