The article discusses the Biodontics Educational Program. The program was developed to engage, identify and enhance the number of early adopters of new technologies in the dental industry as the success of a product is determined by how fast it is adopted by the industry. Supported by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the curriculum was designed to also provide competency in product evaluation. The program also includes tours of manufacturing companies.
