MedEdPORTAL is a free, open-access publication that
promotes educational scholarship and collaboration by facilitating the open
exchange of peer-reviewed health education teaching and assessment resources.
The number of emerging technologies that have the potential
to significantly improve both educational delivery and patient care in dental
medicine is expanding at a rapid rate. Examples include genomic dental
medicine, laser therapy, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, advanced
diagnostic technologies and biomaterial engineering, to name just a few.
Incorporating these emerging didactic and clinical technologies into the dental
school curriculum is critical to the education of future dentists. Academic
dentistry should be leading efforts in this area to
advance clinically focused teaching and promote research into innovations
intended to improve patient outcomes.
MedEdPORTAL invites authors, owners and contributors to
submit their works for publication consideration. Potential topics include, but
are not limited to, the following educational approaches:
- Classroom learning technologies
- Virtual reality
- Computer-assisted design/computer-assisted
- Cone beam imaging
- Digital impressions
- 3D printing
- Digital treatment planning
- Emerging technologic approaches to disease
diagnosis and management
- Biomaterial engineering
- Electronic health record advances
- Artificial intelligence
All submissions must be considered stand-alone, complete
teaching or learning modules that have been tested in the classroom,
preclinical laboratory or clinic, and are ready to implement at their own
institutions. Each submission is evaluated by editorial staff and independent
peer reviewers using a standardized review instrument grounded in the tenets of
educational scholarship, thus positioning MedEdPORTAL publications to be on par
with scholarly works in support of faculty tenure and academic advancement
decisions. Published authors receive a formal citation for their accepted
