We are pleased to invite you to “OpenWide: Learning from Data in Dentistry”. This one-day scientific symposium will be held in Houston, Texas on October 12, 2022, as an affiliated meeting of the ADA SmileCon 2022. More information about OpenWide can be found here.

 

The overarching goal of the scientific symposium is to introduce the concept of learning health systems to the practising dental community and to identify and discuss cutting-edge research and strategies using data for improving quality and patient safety in the dental care setting.  The morning session will start with an inspiring opening keynote from Dr Charles Friedman from the University of Michigan. A series of talks from thought leaders in dentistry will follow discussing: 

  1. Best practices in the measurement of quality and safety, and the technology infrastructure needed. 

  2. How to use design thinking to turn knowledge into strategies for improving dental quality and safety, and 

  3. How to implement and evaluate improvement strategies in dental practice. 

 

Invited conference participants will include practising dentists, dental researchers, quality improvement experts, informaticians, insurers, EHR vendors/developers, dental students, and members of dental professional bodies and dental service organizations. 

 

As a key stakeholder, we would be delighted if you could attend this important event to help strengthen the patient safety and quality improvement initiative within dentistry.
