1st Joint conference & workshop sponsored by the ADEA (American Dental Education Association) Cariology Section, AAC (American Academy of Cariology), ORCA (European Organization for Caries Research), and ACFF (Alliance for a Cavity Free Future) Canada-US Section
2nd Pre-ADEA Cariology Workshop
3rd AAC Annual Conference
The main purpose of this one day conference and hands-on workshop was to allow dental educators, practicioners, researchers and other health care providers to share their experiences and facilitate the implementation of best science in clinical caries management in both, dental practice and academia. This conference & workshop also supported the implementation of the US Core Cariology Curriculum within dental schools. This event is a collaborative effort between the following groups:
A 2017 survey inquired about interest of US dental schools in a workshop about the implementation of the US Core Cariology Curriculum (response rate was 79%), and found strong support and interest by both administrators and faculty. Therefore, there is a strong need to provide valuable guidance to US dental educators and practicing dentists facing challenges implementing cariology evidence in education and practice.
