Next, four different case studies will be presented that demonstrate the influence of planning and assessment on culture change at two dental schools. These cases will involve greatly increasing the proportion of under-represented minority students through assessment of non-cognitive factors, instilling a responsibility for the underserved populations through strategic planning, modifying e-teaching and e-learning practices through assessment and revising the dental curriculum through strategic planning and assessment.

  • Describe emerging trends and changes in the provision and financing of dental education and health care.
  • Discuss the implications of reforms on roles and vitality of academic institutions, practitioners, workforce innovations and oral health of communities.
  • Identify strategic directions for academic institutions to maximize opportunities and address missions in education, patient care, community service, and research.
