The American Dental Association and American Association for Dental Research are searching for dental educators and clinicians who have made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry.

The nomination deadline for the Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty and Practice Awards is Sept. 8. The awards, which include a plaque and $1,000, will be presented during an online ceremony in December. 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. university; the Evidence-Based Dentistry Mid-Career Faculty Award for those with five to 15 years as a full- or part-time faculty member at an accredited U.S. university; and the Evidence-Based Dentistry Practice Award for those who have completed an evidence-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 or AADR. Applicants may nominate themselves.
