Undergraduate Student Research Competition

The Undergraduate Student Research Competition is hosted each year at ADHA’s Annual Conference! All undergraduate dental hygiene students are eligible to present a poster in this competition. There are two categories that students can present a poster for in the competition: Research Poster (original research) or Informative Poster Presentation (non-original research).
