Abstract

The Association of Dental Groups' Undergraduate Bursary Award (Professionalism) is an annual award for undergraduate entries relating to professionalism in dentistry. It is open to all UK dental undergraduates, whether dentists, hygienists, therapists or clinical dental technicians, and has three prizes: gold, silver and bronze. The competition involves answering two questions: ‘Describe what the term “dental professional” means to you, ensuring that you cover each of the main domain headings?’ and ‘Describe a time and situation in which you have had to demonstrate dental professionalism and explain which aspect of the main domain headings were relevant in the circumstances?’ The 2016 Silver Prize was awarded to Danny Watts, and here we present his essay on what the term ‘dental professional’ means to him.
