Please use this guide to aid you in your research for your Informational Dental Hygiene Poster Project.

What is a informational poster?

An Informational Poster Presentation is a presentation using oral communication and a professional poster to inform, clarify, and/or review material on a specific topic.

  • The poster will present useful and timely information in an original, interesting manner.
  • This information may be a technique, theory, service, trend, or expanded opportunity in the practice of dental hygiene and/or the broader realm of oral and systemic health.
  • Your Informational Poster should be focused, clear, and concise to provide information quickly and stimulate attention and interest. An Informational Poster is not an exhibit of materials
