New Photo of Tiger Woods Inspires Inside Dentistry Contest
January 20, 2015 - Tiger Woods was in Italy this week to watch his girlfriend, skier Lindsey Vonn, break a 35-year-old record for the highest number of career World Cup wins (she did, with 63). The record wasn’t the only thing broken, however.
A rush of photographers trying to get a picture of Vonn on the podium caused an unfortunate accident when one knocked out Woods’ tooth with his video camera, according to the agent of the world’s most famous golfer. Woods was photographed with an anterior tooth missing from his famous smile. It is unclear at this time if he will receive treatment before his first PGA Tour event of the year, the Waste Management Phoenix Open taking place next week.
Whenever Woods seeks treatment, it will likely be a challenging case for the clinician. Treating a world-famous celebrity, whose job demands high esthetics, will be no easy task, and that’s without even knowing the clinical side of the case. We know our readers have treated cases this tough—or tougher—so we want to see them! Share your challenging anterior case with us, and we will publish the best case and result in an upcoming issue of Inside Dentistry. The winner, who will be chosen by the Inside Dentistry editorial board, will also receive a $500 prize.
To enter, send your name, contact information, and a short description of the case (500 words or less) with photographs, if applicable, to Director of Corporate Communications, Mark Macaulay, firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries are due by February 19, 2015 at 5 PM EST.
