Nominations sought for evidence-based dentistry awards

April 25, 2018 The ADA and the American Association for Dental Research are in search of dental educators and clinicians who have made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry.

The nomination deadline for the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty & Practice Awards is June 27. Awards, which include a plaque, $1,000 and airfare and lodging to receive the award at ADA 2018 – America's Dental Meeting, will be presented during the meeting in Honolulu. The awards are supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Colgate.

The three awards include the Evidence-Based Dentistry Accomplished Faculty Award for full- or part-time faculty members with 15 or more years at an accredited U.S. dental school; the Evidence-Based Dentistry Mid-Career Faculty Award for those with between five and 15 years as a full- or part-time faculty member at an accredited U.S. dental school; and the Evidence-Based Dentistry Practice Award for those who've completed an evidenced-based dentistry project within the past two years or demonstrated leadership in implementing evidence-based dentistry in private practice or a public health setting.

All awardees must be members of the ADA and/or the American Association for Dental Research. Applicants may nominate themselves.
