The Sunstar Regional Award of Distinction for Dental Hygienists recognise the work and accomplishments of dental hygienists across Europe who have made a significant contribution to the dental hygiene field.

Are you a qualified, officially registered, dental hygienist, then you can compete for this prize. It is also possible to nominate a colleague of yours, as long as he or she is also a registered dental hygienist. The Award is split into six categories from which the nominee can choose from: Public Health, Full Time Clinician, Academia, Entrepreneur, New RDH and Research.

The European Award of Distinction act as a qualifying round for the World Dental Hygienists Award. Last date to nominate yourself or a colleague is April 15, 2024.

The 2024 WDHA winners will be announced in July during the International Symposium of Dental Hygiene celebrated in Seoul, and the new edition will begin in January 2025.

All nominations across the six categories will be judged by an independent selection committee. Each winner will automatically qualify for the World Dental Hygienists Award (WDHA), and have the opportunity to win the global award and travel to Milan, where the International Symposium on Dental Hygiene (ISDH) and the World Dental Hygienist Award ceremony will be held in 2026.
