Philippe Hujoel, D.D.S., a professor at the University of Washington School of Dentistry & School of Public Health, led a workshop on evidence-based dentistry. The program consisted of five segments including: the evidence pyramid, diagnosis and screening, etiology and harm, treatment, and simple tools for implementing evidence-based dentistry in clinical practice.
This annual event provides an opportunity for faculty and residents to earn some continuing education credits while networking and sharing ideas with their fellow professionals in an enjoyable environment.
