Course Description:  
Obtaining, organizing, and sorting primitive data related to patients and students’ records is a daily process in dental schools. Whether handwritten or digitally inserted, this data contains valuable information that when properly processed, could reveal lots of information and clues in relation to oral health of the patients and performance of dental students. In the last decade, data mining became an attractive science based on core principles that allows the process of finding anomalies, patterns and correlations within large data sets to predict outcomes of interest. Unstructured data alone makes up 90% of the digital universe, but more information does not necessarily mean more knowledge. Data mining allows us to shift through all the chaotic and repetitive noise in our data, understand what is relevant and assess likely outcomes, and accelerate the pace of making informed decisions.
