Malaysian Dental Students’ Association will be establishing its first Dental Intervarsity Clinical Skills Competition, namely the Malaysia’s Next Top Dentists 2019 in collaboration with Faculty of Dentistry, MAHSA University.

We are very honored to have 3M Malaysia as the main sponsor and being the main support for this event. 3M Malaysia has conducted their intervarsity competitions since 2009, and this would be their 10th Anniversary Intervarsity competition. Feedback from universities supervisors and students indicate that timing and logistics and costings are main considerations for the success of the event and as the proposed timelines for 3M Intervarsity Competitions and the NDSSC are very close to each other, MDSA and 3M would like to suggest a collaborative effort and introduction of Malaysia’s Next Top Dentist as a one of a kind, exclusive Intervarsity competition.

The aim for this event is to be able to connect all 13 dental schools, whilst promoting healthy competitive spirit amongst the students and help to unleash the creative side that dentistry brings out in students with the different types of competitions provided. This event will incorporate collaborations with various respectable associations such as Malaysian Association of Prosthodontics (MAP), Malaysian Association of Aesthetic Dentistry (MAAD), Malaysian Association of Pediatric Dentistry (MAPD), Malaysian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (MAOMS) and Malaysian Association of Orofacial Disease (MAOFD).
