2nd Pre-ADEA Cariology Workshop

3rd AAC Annual Conference

The main purpose of this one day conference and hands-on workshop is 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 will also support the implementation of the US Core Cariology Curriculum within dental schools. This event is a collaborative effort between the following groups:

  • The ADEA Section on Cariology provides a venue within ADEA to discuss and enhance the teaching of Cariology.
  • The AAC is a non-for-profit organization, which has as an educational and practice goal to support and create educational and education-related research activities in the field of cariology.
  • The mission of ORCA is to promote understanding of dental caries, and can help provide guidance on implementation.
  • The ACFF, a non-for-profit charitable organization, is a group of worldwide leading dental experts who have joined forces to help implement changes to dental health practices across the globe. The ACFF aims to promote initiatives to stop the development and progression of tooth decay in order to move towards a Cavity-Free Future for everyone.

 

BACKGROUND
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.
