Special Issue: Dental Informatics

Dental Informatics aims at improving the entire field of dentistry by providing a set of tools, methods and resources, which can transform and improve daily clinical practice as well as dental research and education by the aid of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). For these reasons the knowledge it imparts must be considered essential and therefore should be mastered and taught.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect evidence-based information about research work, on-going projects and clinical experiences with Dental Informatics. The goal is twofold: on one hand, it will provide an updated state-of-the-art of the field and new research advances on some of the most topical aspects of this variegated and multidisciplinary field. On the other hand, this information can support clinical professionals in assessing how they can improve their daily practice, and can assist educators in the dentistry field in providing their students with the skills increasingly needed in 21st century. We solicit original research articles, review articles and clinical studies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

• Usability issues of advanced software interfaces in clinical care
• Electronic dental record and international standards for interoperability and transportability of data in dental electronic health records
• Workflow in Dentistry
• Automatic landmarking of cephalograms
• Design and evaluation of educational software for Dentistry
• Software tools in Dentistry and dental practice
• Eye tracker technology in Dentistry
• Design and use of dental ontology or controlled vocabularies for describing, representing, organizing, retrieving and using dental information
• Knowledge discovery from text in Dentistry to support clinical decision-making as well as educational and professional development
• 3D cephalometric analysis
• Automatic evaluation of skeletal age
• Information technology infrastructure in Dentistry (design, deployment, calibration, assessment)
• Mechanisms to safeguard privacy, confidentiality and security of patient information
• Online dental community
• 3D scanner in Dentistry
• Image processing in Dentistry
