Virtually everything we do in dentistry that involves research, teaching, administration or patient care is based on generation, storage and manipulation of information (information management). The current paradigm for managing information in dentistry, as in most health care, is human memory backed by printed or written information stored in books or journals. We distribute and communicate information via printed or verbal channels.
