ADA, Forsyth Institute to offer EBD primer in November

September 03, 2012

By Jean Williams, ADA News staff

Cambridge, Mass.—Time is on your side if you’ve been considering signing up for the ADA/Forsyth Institute’s 2012 EBD Course Nov. 5-9. The deadline for application has been extended to Sept. 25.

The course focuses on the primary aspects of evidence-based dental practice and is a collaboration between the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry and the Forsyth Institute, where the interactive program will take place.

Some key learning objectives include how to implement the best evidence in clinical practice and teaching; how to ask precise, structured clinical questions; and how to understand statistics and other criteria to implement EBD in practice and teaching.

Tuition is $2,500 and includes course materials, breakfast and lunch. ADA members receive a 20 percent discount. Co-sponsor Sunstar Americas, Inc. is offering $500 off the tuition for the first 40 applicants.

The course is open to all dentists, members of the dental team, educators and researchers from both the United States and the international community.

The Forsyth Institute, which is affiliated with Harvard University, was founded more than a century ago to provide charitable dental care to children in Boston. Today it is dedicated to promoting oral health through research and education.

Applicants must complete an online questionnaire and submit a curriculum vitae. Participants will receive continuing education credits from the ADA and a certificate in EBD from the Forsyth Institute.

For more information and to apply, visit, or contact Erica Vassilos, manager of the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry, at 1.312.440.2523 or
