Caries Management Competency: Implementation of This New CODA Requirement

Caries Management Competency: Implementation of This New CODA Requirement

Includes a Live Web Event on 12/07/2022 at 1:00 PM (EST)

With the recent addition to Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) Standard 2-24d that “graduates must be competent in health promotion and diseases prevention, including caries management,” there is now a requirement to create mechanisms that demonstrate this competency. 

While dental caries is the most common dental disease, previous CODA requirements and dental schools, in general, have focused only on the surgical treatment to excise caries and restore the remaining tooth structure. Caries is a multi-factorial disease, and management of caries requires individual risk assessment and risk-based treatment planning. Reassessment of caries risk also must be performed over time to reinforce and reevaluate patients’ compliance and response to the management plan proposed. Caries management competency involves the evaluation of student’s ability to develop and perform these complex critical thinking skills. Unlike most single-event, competency evaluations, demonstrating these skills requires different strategies. This complimentary webinar will provide examples of how five dental schools have met this requirement using systematic and creative ways. 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the elements of a caries management competency that both encourages and effectively evaluates student ability to assess individual patient risk, develop an appropriate treatment plan and reassess the caries risk and management plan over time.
  • Develop a competency for caries management at individual level using best practices from other institutions. 
  • Identify what criteria lead to a successful caries management competency.
