The award is intended to celebrate students who have been involved in a project and made an exceptional contribution, developed an outstanding initiative or gone the extra mile. Applicants should demonstrate excellence and endeavour beyond the requirements of the curriculum.
This award recognises the initiative, contribution, and hard work of undergraduate students to the dental profession.
We are pleased to announce our first-ever FDS Undergraduate Prize Award winner:
Tabitha Whates - Bristol University
Tabitha has demonstrated exceptional leadership through the establishment of a noteworthy dental charity initiative, building links between the dental school and diverse communities across Bristol. Through visits to primary schools, homeless shelters, and various communities, she was able to help identify the needs and dental challenges faced by these groups. One of these successful projects is Jumpstart Kids, a fitness and nutrition initiative dedicated to supporting families in poverty. Through this project, she was able to conduct valuable dental-oriented health sessions for children in need. Working with staff at the dental school, she also helped to introduce community engagement work into the undergraduate curriculum, enhancing the educational landscape of dental studies.
