Cox Presentation by July 14: https://norc.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcscu2trjkuHNG0dt11glXkzXB2Ms5shYCR SPEAKER: Dr. Dipankar Bandyopadhyay, Professor, Department of Biostatistics, Virginia Commonwealth University TITLE: Personalized Dynamic Treatment Regimes in Oral Health A Statistical Perspective ABSTRACT: Tooth loss from chronic periodontal disease (PD) continues to remain a major public health burden in the US. With the continued increase in oral healthcare costs, there is an urgent need to develop effective treatment strategies, and thereby reduce expenditure. Throughout the years, the limitations of conducting randomized clinical trials, the de facto method for evaluating treatment effectiveness and interventions, have been recognized, leading to development of more patient-centric treatment approaches, primarily through adaptive interventions, or dynamic treatment regimes (DTRs). Although DTR has been well-explored in a number of disciplines, such as psychiatry and drug abuse, a DTR proposal in oral health seems nonexistent. In this talk, we propose DTRs as effective individualized strategies for managing PD progression. ********************************************************************* Annual Awards Ceremony: Wednesday July 15, 5:30PM-7:00PM RSVP by JULY 14: The award presentation and ceremony will be online this year.
