What is AIDPH Academy?
AIDPH ACADEMY furthers our mission to foster education while creating space for our community to forge connection. The Academy focuses on three critical areas of need in dental public health: leadership development, capacity building, and professional growth. We will deliver programs through our Academy platform, an environment fostering both social connection and educational content.
AIDPH will launch our first area of programming in 2022: leadership development.
The need to develop oral health leaders is great. The COVID experience has shined a light on the critical role of public health leadership in our country. The ability to assess and address community oral health is just as important as addressing individual oral health: the two are mutually defining and inseparable. Yet, formal leadership development programs and succession planning are largely absent for dental public health professionals. We must encourage and equip a new generation of clinicians with the training and support they need. To not accept the status quo. To innovate. To inspire. To lead.
