The prize is open to any person associated with the provision or organisation of dental care for children in Ireland. The O’Mullane Award, named after the society’s first chairman Professor Dennis O’Mullane, is given to the best individual judged to have presented on any topic related to the provision of dental care to children, including technique description, audit, case report, literature review, research or service organisation.
