    Using current scenarios from cariology teaching and clinical decision making, strategies to increase acceptance and implementation of current caries best practice will be outlined to help guide effective calibration.

    As understanding of caries pathophysiology has advanced, several decades of cariology and restorative research has significantly reshaped clinical dental practice and our teaching. ADA Clinical Practice Guidelines recommend using patient risk assessments and preventative, non-restorative and restorative strategies as appropriate in treatment plans to guide better care for each patient. 

    In dental schools, inconsistent adherence to these guidelines has limited the improvement of outcomes for our current and future patients. Challenges with faculty calibration have been cited in ADEA Sections on Cariology and Operative Dentistry as a major barrier to implementation of evidence-based practice in caries management. A relatively new field of research, known as Dissemination and Implementation Science, shows promise for addressing this “evidence-to-practice” gap in training and clinical care.

    With ADEA Cariology leaders, a clinical psychologist and behavioral researcher will discuss the issues that impede implementation outcomes particularly relevant to dental faculty. Using current scenarios from cariology teaching and clinical decision making, strategies to increase acceptance and implementation of current caries best practice will be outlined to help guide effective calibration.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Describe the overall scope and major aims of Dissemination and Implementation Science, including defining common outcomes of oral health-related implementation research
    • Identify and apply strategies for effectively introducing and implementing new caries protocols into clinical practice at their institution
    • Develop new approaches for faculty calibration in the teaching and clinical practice of caries management
