The American Institute of Dental Public Health (AIDPH) hosts an annual colloquium in conjunction with the American Association of Public Health Dentistry (AAPHD). The AIDPH promotes public health scholarship to dental public health scholars, dental public health advanced education students and residents through themed annual colloquia focusing on emerging subjects.
Nationally recognized speakers present research and educational initiatives for innovative public health applications. Dental public health residents are provided unique networking opportunities with speakers, attendees, and other residents. Panels and group discussions interwoven throughout the conference allow for shared ideas and collective impact. Colloquia topics have included valued-based care and interprofessional practice, dental public health informatics, and precision public health. The colloquia are designed to encourage forward-thinking and interactive discussion in an interprofessional environment.
