Sweden’s top dental students receive Weissman/Dentatus award

Freja Håkansson from the Faculty of Odontology at the University of Gothenburg; Hanna Dahl from the Faculty of Odontology at Malmö University; Linda Liljeblad from the Department of Dental Medicine at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm; and Evelina Svanelind from the Faculty of Odontology at the University of Umeå have received the titles of the Best Dental Students.

All four are being honored at this year’s Swedish Dental Exhibition (Odontologisk Riksstämma & Swedental), which is taking place this year digitally from Nov. 11 to 13.

Since 1989, Dentatus AB honors the top student from each of the four dental universities in Sweden. The recipients, nominated by their respective universities for their excellent academic achievements and empathy for their patients, receive a diploma and a scholarship from Dentatus at a special ceremony held at the national dental exhibition Swedental in November every year.

In 2020, the prize has changed its name to The Bernard Weissman/Dentatus Student Achievement Award, in honor of the company’s former president, Bernard Weissman, who was renowned as an inventor of dental products, instruments and techniques whose focus was always the development of affordable solutions that would benefit both dentists and patients.
