CHICAGO, Feb. 13, 2014 —The American Dental Association (ADA) Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry is accepting registrations to attend the 2014 Evidence-Based Dentistry Champions 2.0 Conference scheduled May 9-10 at the ADA Headquarters, 211 E. Chicago Ave., in Chicago.

Attendees will earn between 11 and 14 continuing education credits for their participation in the conference entitled, "Implementing Science in Practice."  Registrations will be accepted online until March 31.

Evidence-Based Dentistry (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 objectives of the conference focus on the implementation of EBD into clinical practice, policy and education, and how to effectively "champion" EBD as part of a broad dissemination effort. EBD enthusiasts, past EBD Champions and those new to EBD will share knowledge and advance existing skills and expertise.

The cost of the conference is $150 for ADA members and $225 for non-members. Visit the conference webpage for more information. This conference is supported by a contribution from Procter & Gamble.
