2020 ADEA CCI Liaisons Summer Meeting

Dates: June 09-11, 2020
Venue: Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown
Location: Minneapolis, MN


The future is here. Are you future ready? Artificial intelligence and digital dentistry are upending traditional dental procedures. Machine learning and natural language processing is resulting in virtual assistants that allow dental providers to voice-command specific radiographs to view, identify decay, complete a thorough diagnosis and design a treatment plan. Augmented and virtual reality promises to improve health outcomes in addition to the dentist-person experience. Robotics and dynamic navigation are now part of daily practices for dental implant placement. What will the future dentist need to know? What will the dental school of the future look like? How will the dental curriculum need to adapt so today’s graduates can practice successfully in 2040?

Join us for the 2020 ADEA Commission on Change and Innovation (ADEA CCI)in Dental Education Summer Meeting as we preview and interact with the future now, explore the critical data dental education will need to fulfill the promise of data-driven dentistry, and collaborate with other dental educators to determine education models that support the future of dental education with the first ADEA CCI 2.0 Hackathon! 

The future is here—are you future ready?
