Outstanding LSRG Chapter Award 

The AADR NSRG vision is to “help dental students across the nation establish chapters and encourage participation in their respective schools, to ensure that research is seen as a vital aspect of dentistry.” Therefore, the NSRG takes pride in recognizing LSRGs for their achievements throughout the year that continue to foster awareness of research in dentistry. This award is aimed to recognize one particular SRG that has excelled in all categories of a successful SRG.

The outstanding SRG will be recognized and awarded $400 at the NSRG business meeting at the AADR Annual Meeting. They will also have the honor to present their SRG successes at the NSRG Faculty Advisor Breakfast.
