CJDH Research Award

The Canadian Journal of Dental Hygiene (CJDH) Research Award celebrates outstanding scholarship and the important role of Canadian dental hygiene research in building the knowledge base and guiding the practice of the dental hygiene profession.  This annual award is given in two categories: the best original research article and the best literature review published in the journal in the previous volume year. All eligible articles are evaluated by a panel of three experts selected by the journal’s scientific editor. The winning authors and articles are announced formally in the October issue of CJDH, and the awards are presented at the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association’s biennial national conference.

The winners of the 2018 CJDH Research Award for best original research article are Joanna Asadoorian, Dani Botbyl, and Marilyn J Goulding for their article, “Ultrasonic instrumentation instruction in Canadian dental hygiene programs: Perspectives of program directors on curricular elements,” which was published in the February 2017 issue of the journal (Can J Dent Hyg 2017;51[1]7–15).

The winners of the 2018 CJDH Research Award for best literature review are Jacqueline VanMalsen and Sharon M Compton for their article, “Effectiveness of early pediatric dental homes: A scoping review,” which was published in the February 2017 issue of the journal (Can J Dent Hyg 2017;51[1]:23–29).
