EBD Champions Conference open for applications

Organizers and participants in the ADA Evidence-Based Dentistry Champions Conference say they are clear on EBD’s growing value to patients and dentists, and that’s what draws them to the annual gathering each year—and keeps them willing to spread the word to colleagues.

“Being in the first Champions class, I think this is a continuing education opportunity that greatly enhances one’s ability to evaluate new, current and emerging technology,” said Dr. Brian Kennedy, an EBD champion and a member of the 2012 conference planning committee.

The March 8-10 conference at ADA Headquarters will cover what evidence-based dentistry is and how to apply its principles and tools in clinical decision-making. Later, as champions, participants can disseminate information about EBD to other dentists.

To participate in the 2012 conference, a dentist must live and practice in the United States and be directly involved in treating dental patients. Registration is free for participants, who will earn 11 to 14 hours of continuing education credit.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality provided a grant (grant number 1R13HS020551-01A1) that, in part, funds the 2012 conference.
