DeStCo (Dental Student Competition) was initially set to begin in Autumn 2020 as an in-person multi-discipline event for dental students in which they could compete in fields such as music, sports, and performance arts, but it had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event could not begin as planned due to the pandemic's restrictions on social activities.
UKDentalCourses quickly devised a new strategy for launching this competition, and DeStCo was resurrected. DeStCo-Art, a competition where art-loving dental students could compete on an international level and share their artwork with like-minded dental students and other dental professionals to win their votes for a chance to win great prizes, was launched in July 2020.

With DeStCo-Art running successfully for two years in a row, more dental students showing interest in this competition, and restrictions on social activities finally easing, it appears that other fields should be added to DeStCo, restoring its original grandeur!
As a result, our team is currently debating the potential additional fields for DeStCo, and as soon as a decision is made on which fields will be added, it will be announced here and on our social media platforms. So keep an eye on this!
