The American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) have established the Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award to acknowledge dental school faculty members who have made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry (EBD).

To be considered for the award, applicants must be an ADA or AADR member, a full- or part-time faculty member at a US dental school, and have completed an EBD-related project within the last 2 years.

One application per dental school will be accepted. The recipient will receive a $1,000 award at the AADR’s Fall Focus Symposium, October 7 to 8, 2014, which will be held in conjunction with the ADA Annual Meeting in San Antonio.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge faculty members who demonstrate leadership in implementing EBD in research, practice or education, or contribute to the scientific knowledge base of EBD,” said Leslie Winston, DDS, PhD, director professional and scientific relations at Procter and Gamble Professional Oral Health.

Award applications will be accepted until June 30. For additional eligibility requirements and application information, please contact Malavika Tampi at [email protected] or (312) 440-2511.
