University of the Pacific School of Dentistry Launches Study in Partnership with ICE Health Systems

The University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is examining the possible value of webcam technology for the future of instruction for dental students. The study, Evaluation of Effectiveness of A High Definition Webcam In Preclinical Dental Training, will be conducted for one year commencing November 2012.

The purpose of the study is to gather research around innovative training methodology, in this case, the use of high definition web cameras that faculty and instructors will use during preclinical dental skills development.

The students participating in the study will be exposed to both traditional instruction methods as well as the innovative method of webcam instruction. Participants, including faculty will evaluate the effectiveness of each method.

The study is being conducted under the investigation of Dr. Nader Nadershahi, Dr. Anders Nattestad, Dr. Parag Kachalia, Dr. Shika Gupta and the C.E.O. of ICE Health Systems, Dr. Mark Genuis.

ICE Health Systems is very pleased to participate in and provide technological support for the duration of the study.
