The Editor's Corner

Recognizing Clinical Excellence

We at JCO are proud to announce the winner of a new prize, the Eugene L. Gottlieb JCO Student of the Year Award, presented by American Orthodontics. The first recipient is Dr. Krystian Jarosz from Rutgers University, who distinguished himself in a wide field of competitors from orthodontic departments all over the country. He and the 11 other finalists are being profiled in installments on the JCO Facebook page, but Dr. Jarosz's interview appears in this issue as well, along with details of the selection process. We will also be honoring him during the upcoming AAO annual conference in Orlando, Florida. Suffice to say, the graduate orthodontic program at Rutgers has a lot to be proud of in Dr. Jarosz. Although his application and case materials were judged to be the "best" by my colleagues on the JCO editorial board, it was a very difficult decision to reach. It made me, as a senior clinician approaching the end of his career, thankful to see that the specialty is being inherited by such an excellent and worthy generation of upcoming clinicians.

On the cover: Results of simulated treatment with custom bracket bases are compared to the ideal setup, as described by Dr. Pham and colleagues.
