Straumann® SmileAward 2022

  • Driven by the priceless gift of a smile
  • GivingSmilesBack – share your patient story

Basel, 28 February 2022 - Straumann invites dentists everywhere—anyone who gives back smiles—to showcase their most inspiring patient stories by participating in the 2022 SmileAward.

Every day, around the globe, we know dental professionals rely on Straumann to give patients the confidence to smile again, to laugh, to show off their smiles, to eat the foods they love. Thousands of dental professionals use our products and solutions to rebuild the quality of life for patients and to unlock the potential of people’s lives.

While Immediacy Protocols stood in the focus of the SmileAward 2021, the SmileAward 2022, we welcomed dental professionals to show us how THEY are changing the lives of their patients through full-arch rehabilitation or clear aligner therapy. They are invited to submit their best patient stories and share with the world the many ways that dentistry can restore confidence and improve our wellbeing.

The 2022 SmileAward aspires to be the most inspiring, most uplifting clinical case competition.

What’s new for 2022

Our 2021 inaugural contest attracted 93 participants from 30 countries who changed their patients’ lives with immediate protocols. The 2022 SmileAward will encompass another prize - awarding winners in not just one, but two categories:

  • Straumann category for full-arch (edentulous) patient stories
  • ClearCorrect category for clear-aligner orthodontic patient stories

Submission requirements

The required documentation includes all relevant diagnostics and step-by-step illustrations. It is also required to submit a 4-minute video that combines high-definition clinical images with the testimonial of the patient.

All cases fulfilling the criteria will go through to a public vote. A jury composed of key opinion leaders in dentistry will select the final winners, who will be announced at Europerio 2022.


  • Now till 20 April: Submission of cases
  • 1 May – 10 May: Public voting
  • 10 May – 1 June: Selection of winners by our Evaluation Jury
  • 15 June – 18 June: Announcement of winners at Europerio 2022

Great prizes

All finalists in both categories will be awarded a prize so that they can continue changing lives together with Straumann. The top three winners in both contest categories will be #GivingSmilesBack with the materials needed to complete one or more pro bono cases, and our top winner in each category will also get their patient video story edited professionally, and it will be seen with worldwide visibility across Straumann channels and platforms.

Our winners can also opt for a #ChangingLives prize—a donation to a philanthropic organization in their honor—or for a #BoostingYourPractice prize in which the top winner in each category will take home a TRIOS Intraoral Scanner.*


We believe in the transformative power of dentistry. If you’ve provided life-changing treatment for one of your patients, Straumann invites you participate in the 2022 SmileAward.

*If this product is both registered in the country of origin of the winner and permitted according to the laws of the winner’s country of residence.
