The Star of Public Dentistry Award recognises staff in the Victorian public dental sector who have gone above and beyond their roles to improve oral health. Entries should demonstrate the nominee's excellence in improving the oral health outcomes of the Victorian community.

Top Tip 2: If you’re a staff member, include relevant (and brief) statistical data to back up claims made regarding treatment and patient satisfaction outcomes. If you are a patient nominating an oral health professional, state your experience and the outcome of your visit(s).

Nominees may be from clinical or administrative staff members who are employed on a full-time, part-time or casual basis.
