Digital Dentistry Curriculum for International Schools

Thank you for your interest in the ACP Digital Dentistry Curriculum. Our goal is to aid in your implementation of a comprehensive digital dentistry educational and patient care program.

ACP_Digital_CurriculumAs an important part of this project, additional content was created to establish a resource library to assist dental schools and faculty with their digital curriculum implementation. These materials include the curriculum framework (core document), implementation details, competencies, learning objectives, course details, and business planning.

We have also developed core educational content that includes PowerPoints and other key teaching materials (e.g., foundational textbook) in support of the curriculum.

  • Digital Dentistry Curriculum for Predoctoral and Advanced Prosthodontic Education (Core Document)
  • The Abstract Compilation Version 3 includes contributions from five contributing journals and their generous editors, including 162 publications. This compilation provides the current best evidence on digital dentistry from the past 4 years. The compilation is organized under key topical headings that allow individuals to move through the document and directly access the full publication.
  • A White Paper that outlines the recent advances in dentistry and how prosthodontics has aided the adoption of digital technologies in all forms to improve the quality of care and patient experiences.
  • The Glossary of Digital Dental Terms is a convenient reference document to assure clarity of communication in this emerging field of dentistry.
  • An electronic core textbook, Fundamentals of CAD/CAM Dentistry, was donated by Dr. Jonathan Ferencz and Dr. Nelson Silva. This text is intended to aid students and serve as an introductory guide for the clinician starting the digital journey.

There are many more resources to offer guidance and support the implementation process for your institution. Please contact digitalcurriculum@prosthodontics.org to establish an ACP account and access these resources.
