The conference is a joint event by the American Academy of Cariology (third annual meeting), ORCA (European Organization for Caries Research), ADEA Cariology Section (second Cariology pre-ADEA meeting) and the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future Canada-US Chapter.
The two day conference and hands-on workshop has the purpose to facilitate implementation and address the challenges of the cariology curriculum.
One of the main AAC goals is to support and create educational and education-related research activities in the field of cariology that will eventually affect practitioners at all levels. Participation from dentist, educators, researchers, dental and non-dental professionals that share the goal to eradicate dental caries in the US will enrich the discussion and will benefit from this important event.
The Academy is structured around five interest groups, referred to as Pillars. Academy members have the opportunity to join the Pillar Committees to be involved in the development of their short and long term goals:
Advocacy and support
Caries-related professional and community education
Science-based caries management for individuals and communities
