Jones wins international research award

Adam Jones PhotoCongratulations to Adam Jones, D.M.D., a third year resident in the graduate prosthodontics program who won a first place award clinical research in prosthodontics at the 2014 International Team for Implantology (ITI) World Symposium, in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 2014.

Jones was one of four University of Florida dental residents who’s research posters were accepted to the symposium competition; the others were Nicholas Goetz, Luis Gonzaga and Joshua Perry.

Jones’ research poster, “Comparing Pink and White Esthetic Scores to Layperson Perception,” was one of 280 in the competition. The first place prize includes a certificate of recognition and 500 CHF (about $550). His research goal was to establish a clinically-based threshold of dental implant success based on layperson perceptions and his project was mentored by Will Martin, D.M.D., M.S.

Jones’ research project was also recently accepted for publication in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants. Congratulations to all four of our outstanding residents for being recognized for excellence in their field!

The ITI was founded in 1980 by 12 experts planning ahead for the future of their field and has a mission to promote and disseminate knowledge on all aspects of implant dentistry and related tissue regeneration through education and research to the benefit of the patient.
