Osteology Case Competitions

Join one of the Osteology Case Competitions. All users of THE BOX can participate and submit their cases from the Case Box. Registration is free of charge. 

Osteology Case Competitions are organised frequently, and for different indications. Below you find a list of ongoing and planned case competitions. They provide the opportunity to show your most outstanding or interesting oral regeneration cases to the community. And of course there is always a prize for the winner!

Winners are selected by a combination of jury decision and likes by the community. The details are listed in the regulations of the individual competition.
