  • Minimum of five years beyond obtaining Ph.D.
  • IADR/DMG members with at least a three-year record of abstracts presented at IADR or related DMG-sponsored programs.

To remain a vital and relevant organization, it is imperative for the DMG to maintain and invigorate our pipeline of researchers engaged in all aspects of traditional dental materials as well as materials-centered studies applied to the oral/facial complex. To encourage diverse, high-quality research perspectives and initiatives, we want to be fully inclusive in this outreach to include individuals from any institution as well as from all regions of the IADR - North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa/Middle East, and Asia/Pacific.
