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 2020 CJDH Research Award for best original research article are Susanne Sunell, Denise M Laronde, and Zul Kanji for their article, “Graduating dental hygiene students’ attainment of the CDHA baccalaureate competencies: Students’ self-ratings,” published in the June 2019 issue of the journal (Can J Dent Hyg 2019;53[2]:100–109).
