Eric Navok, a fourth-year dental student at the University of Connecticut, is the winner of DentalEZ Group's Hands-On social media contest.
Dental students who participated in the contest were asked to capture a photograph of a "hands-on" moment in their daily lives that they are passionate about, in or out of the oral healthcare arena, and then submit the image to DentalEZ Group via its Facebook page.
Navok will receive a DentalEZ All Access Pass to the 2012 ADA Annual Session in October in San Francisco. This includes flight, transportation, two-night hotel stay, show registration, and a meet and greet at the DentalEZ booth. In addition, Navok will receive a personally engraved StarDental Starter Kit containing one high-speed handpiece, one low-speed motor, one swivel, and two attachments.
Navok is a lifelong resident of Stamford, CT. He graduated from Case Western Reserve University and worked for two years as a chemist for Duracell before changing careers to dentistry.
