This project seeks to establish a multi-disciplinary effort dedicated to the practice of Dental Informatics through the training and development of new health delivery concepts and tools. This aligns itself with NNLMs efforts to advance the highest quality of health information to the greatest benefit of society. Dentistry is an information-intensive activity, and health informatics by its very nature supports such activities well. The purpose of MemDIS 2020 Symposium is to provide an academic enrichment forum for the exchange of ideas on current Dental Informatics practice, research, education and management. MemDIS 2020 will explore on how health information technological advances be made most useful for dental practice, research and education. NLM brochures, videos, and booklets. Health Information in Dental profession faces several challenges-. These include: Many dentists have computer-stored diagnostic and treatment data, however meaningful use of these data are not achieved in many dental practices. Interpretation may be difficult due to different formats and content. A goal is to be able to obtain a one-click view of a patients oral health status and history, as well as of the pertinent medical history. Expensive, labor- and resource- intensive research studies are rarely conducted in Dental Informatics
