EBD and Forsyth

The ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry and Forsyth Institute are offering the second interactive evidence-based dentistry course Sept. 19-23 at the Forsyth Institute in Boston.

Application deadline is Aug. 1. The course is open to U.S. and international participants.

Dr. Luana Oliveira, a 2010 participant and professor at Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine, said the course has served as a resource when teaching EBD to her students.

As a result, she has “encouraged her students to think critically and use the principles and methods of evidence-based dentistry in developing clinical recommendations for their patients.

“I believe the future of dental education and the profession lies in the application of EBD,” she said.

This year’s course is open to all dentists, dental team members, educators, researchers and other professionals with previous evidence-based dentistry experience. Dr. Richard Niederman, director, Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry at the Forsyth Institute, and Dr. Derek Richards, director, Centre for Evidence-Based Dentistry at Oxford University, will lead the weeklong experience in EBD.

The cost for the course is $2,500. ADA members receive a 20 percent discount, and participants are responsible for their travel and housing expenses. At the end of the course, participants will receive an EBD certificate from the Forsyth Institute and ADA continuing education credits.
