Weyant to be honored for dental research at ADA 2014

Robert Weyant, DMD, the associate dean for dental public health and community outreach at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, will be honored as this year's recipient of the American Dental Association/American Association for Dental Research (ADA/AADR) Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award. Dr. Weyant will receive this award at this week's ADA 2014 annual meeting in San Antonio.

Dr. Weyant was selected for his service as chair of the expert panel that led to the ADA's Council on Scientific Affairs publishing an updated clinical practice guideline for the professional use of topical fluoride. Dr. Weyant is also being honored for his work promoting and educating dental students and faculty about evidence-based dentistry (EBD) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and Oxford University in England.

The EBD Faculty award was created to acknowledge a dental school faculty member who has made significant contributions to implement and advance evidence-based dentistry. The Evidence-Based Dentistry Faculty Award is supported by a contribution from Procter & Gamble.
