Don't delay nominating your favorite people, products, and events. Nominations are only open through Sunday, November 6.
Like last year, your nominations and votes are crucial for determining the winners. Below is how the process works:
- DrBicuspid.com members submit nominations for the awards. Eligible nominees with the most votes become semifinalists, which will be announced later this year.
- DrBicuspid.com members will vote for the semifinalists they want to see as finalists. The two semifinalists with the most votes become the finalists.
- A prestigious panel of experts will vote for the finalists they would like to see as the 2023 Cuspies winners. The finalists with the most votes will win their designated category.
The 2023 Cuspies winners will be announced in 2023. Trophies will be presented at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting in February.
