Title

Prosthodontic Olympics

The Prosthodontic Olympics was developed with a philosophy that learning can be engaging and fun. The competition consists of 5 events: alginate impressions, boxing a final impression, placing a rubber dam, crown preparations, and making a provisional restoration. Students work in teams and dress in costume for the games.  Prizes worth over $7,000 are donated by dental companies and awarded to gold, silver and bronze medalists.  Classwork is cancelled on the morning of the competition and there is a boisterous opening ceremonies with lighting of an 'Olympic' flame and the introduction of the teams.
