Workshops from the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry provide dental clinicians and educators with an opportunity to receive hands-on instruction from some of EBD's leading practitioners. Our educational offerings are highlighted below.
How to Conduct and Publish Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses
This hands-on workshop offers instruction from experts in the field of dental research, including the editor of the Journal of the American Dental Association. Attendees will gain insight into the entire process of writing a systematic review through the use of interactive activities that illustrate how to search for evidence, assess the quality of this evidence, and structure a manuscript. The next workshop will be held November 12–14, 2020. Learn more
Dentistry for the Modern Age
Whether you're a dental clinician or educator, this hands-on workshop offers an engaging, interactive opportunity to hone your skills by participating in one of two streams.
- How to Provide Excellent Care: Designed for clinicians who want to apply the latest scientific evidence to patient care, this stream reviews the most current clinical recommendations from the ADA and provides clinicians with the tools needed to incorporate this—and future—research into practice.
- How to Teach Evidence-Based Dentistry: Designed for educators, this stream covers pedagogical best practices for instilling students with the curious mind-set needed to provide evidence-based treatment.
This workshop was held November 14–16, 2019, at ADA headquarters in Chicago. The workshop will be held again in 2021. Learn more
