AAOP Student Award Criteria

It is suggested that the American Academy of Orofacial Pain Outstanding Senior Award be presented to an outstanding student who has demonstrated the greatest commitment and interest to temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and orofacial pain. The Academy is interested in honoring students with special interest and skill in our field and to encourage students to further their education in TMD and Orofacial Pain.

The award consists of a certificate suitable for framing.
