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.

DeStCo-Art 2023 concluded with a great in-person finals event with live music, drinks, and snacks at Queen Mary University of London where the winners were announced.

With DeStCo-Art running successfully for three years in a row, more dental students are showing interest in this competition and DeStCo-Art will be returning in 2024 with a view to add other fields to this competition in the near future.
