DeStCo- Art 2020

The purpose behind DeStCo- Art:

 

Dentistry may be considered as a profession that integrates art with science and medicine. Many dental students create artwork during their free time both as a means by which to improve their manual dexterity and to enjoy their free time engaging in a creative hobby. Dental Student Competitions- Art, was created as a platform for dental students to share their art with each other and find like-minded individuals while also enabling them to participate in a fun competitive activity through which their talent may be appreciated, recognised and rewarded.
