Judges rank the treatment cases based on treatment planning and execution, quality of the records, case write-up, and unique features from pre-treatment to the final result of the completed cases. During the past seven competitions, Iowa has captured 2nd, 1st, 1st, 1st, 4th, 3rd, and 2nd place wins over 200 competing cases from most of the residency programs from the US and North America. Following this unprecedented winning streak, the University of Iowa Orthodontics has won again, this year capturing ‘honorable mention’ in a cleft case supervised by Dr. Lina Moreno.  

“We thank all our residents for their dedicated patient care and hard work. The outstanding educational experience residents receive at Iowa has translated into this continued nationwide recognition,” - Dr. Kyungsup Shin, Graduate Program Director of Orthodontics.
