ENTRY and CONTEST PROCEDURES
(a) Qualifying/Preliminary Round: Entrants may enter the Promotion by appearing in person between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM MT at the Speed Scan Smackdown area in the Expo Hall at RMDC 2024. Team members will scan the Entrant’s RMDC 2024 badge to log the Entrant’s identity and contact information into the promotion, assist the Entrant in selecting an intraoral scanner from among the scanners available* and show the Entrant how to get started. The Entrant will then perform a timed scan of a dental typodont model, after which each Entrant will be informed of their scan time. All scans must be completed by 6:00 PM MT on Thursday, January 18, 2024, to be entered into the Promotion.

(b) Final Round: A judge will view the scans and scan times of all the Entrants and select the top five (5) Entrants to compete in the final round based on a combination of scan accuracy and scanning time. The selection of the qualifiers for the final round of the Promotion is the sole decision of the judge, whose decisions will be final and non-appealable. Entrants advancing to the final round will be notified via their contact information linked to their RMDC 2024 registration information. The final round of the Promotion will occur on Friday, January 19, 2024, commencing at 12:00 PM MT on the stage in the Speed Scan Smackdown area in the Expo Hall at RMDC 2024.
