Assessment: Portraits of Change

The theme of the 2010 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition, "Assessment: Portraits of Change," emphasized the dual role that all dental educators have to not only look back on our successes, but to also prepare ourselves for the future by building on the foundations of our profession. In this high-paced, information-intense world, creating and seizing these possibilities helps us remain at the forefront of dental education.
