The big day has arrived: the prestigious "Future of Dentistry Award @Dentaprime" from the Dentaprime dental clinic has been presented. This year's winner, Rebecca Greune, assistant dentist from the University Centre for Dental Medicine in Basel, received the award, which is endowed with 3,000 euros. 

Rebecca Greune won the research prize with her Master's thesis, which she completed as part of her studies at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Basel. The young scientist impressed the jury with the innovative strength and scientific value of her study, which is entitled: "Framework design of zirconia pendant bridges on ceramic implants."

Dr Ivan Peev, a member of the jury, is delighted with the results of Greune's research and emphasises their relevance for practice: "This is a particularly exciting topic for us at Dentaprime Dental Clinic," he says, "as we often work with zirconia implant systems in our day-to-day clinical work. It is only thanks to continuous research that we can offer our patients ever better treatments and results."
