Description

Keynote Speaker Dr. Gregg H. Gilbert, Professor and Chair of the Department of Clinical & Community Sciences, (UAB) University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry will be discussing “How the National Dental PBRN can improve your dental practice”

Abstract: Dr. Gilbert will explain what dental practice-based research entails and how it is improving dental practice and the dental profession. In 2012, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, part of the National Institutes of Health, funded the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network (National Dental PBRN) for a seven-year period. The National Dental PBRN is a network of participating practices and dental organizations that seeks to improve the nation’s oral health by improving the knowledge base for clinical decision-making and moving the latest evidence into routine care.
