CHICAGO, Feb. 14, 2014 — The American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) have established the Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award to acknowledge a dental school faculty member who has made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry (EBD).
Applicants must be an ADA or AADR member, a full or part- time faculty member at a US dental school and have completed an EBD-related project within the last two years. One application per dental school will be accepted. The recipient will receive a $1,000 award at the AADR’s Fall Focus Symposium Oct. 7-8, which will be held in conjunction with the ADA Annual Meeting in San Antonio.
“This will be a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge faculty members who demonstrate leadership in implementing EBD in research, practice or education, or contribute to the scientific knowledge base of EBD,” said Leslie Winston, DDS, PhD, Director Professional and Scientific Relations at Procter and Gamble Professional Oral Health.
EBD focuses on providing personalized dental care based on the most current scientific knowledge. EBD integrates scientific evidence, the patient's oral and medical condition, medical history and treatment preferences, and the dentist's clinical judgment. The Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award is supported by a contribution from Procter & Gamble.
Award applications will be accepted until June 30. For additional eligibility requirements and application information, please contact Malavika Tampi at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-440-2511.
