An Adapted Framework for Incorporating the Social Determinants of Health into Predoctoral Dental Curricula
Journal of Dental Education | February 2019
Social determinants of health (SDH) impact the overall health and well-being of the entire population.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has defined social determinants of health (SDH) as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age.” SDH emphasizes that social, physical, and psychosocial environments are the contextual components that impact proximal factors such as individual behavior and lifestyle choices, which in turn lead to optimal or poor health.
Person-Centered Care: Opportunities and Challenges for Academic Dental Institutions and Programs
Journal of Dental Education | November 2017

Person-Centered Care: The GPS to Overall Health
Journal of Dental EducationLDsports 开户 | November 2017
During my childhood, I remember my grandfather’s use of a magnetic compass as a guide when we hiked in the wooded areas of upstate New York. Because he’d grown up in New York City, he viewed the acres of forest on which he built his home as a new frontier. “This is all you need to travel the world,” he would say, trusting in the science supporting the Earth’s magnetic field, coupled with his own observations and experiences “knowing true north.”

Competencies for the New General Dentist
Competencies for the
New General Dentist constructs the competencies for a new general dentist as an interdisciplinary model with thematic units rather than as discipline-specific courses and identifies foundation knowledge for each competency as well as the knowledge that should be a prerequisite to admission
to dental school.
Critical Thinking Skills Toolbox
LDsports 开户Learning how to teach students to use critical thinking skills requires fundamental shifts in beliefs about and planning for teaching. Some dental educators ask, "What does critical thinking look like in the clinic? In the classroom? How do I successfully teach students to use critical
thinking skills when they don't read before class or attend class regularly?" This toolkit is designed to begin answering those questions.
This Dental Student Assessment Toolbox was created to assist dental educators with the critical yet challenging task of determining the optimal methods for assessing students’ progression toward and ultimate attainment of the competencies designated as necessary for the entry-level
practice of general dentistry.
