dc.description.abstract University based dental education experiences financial strain in its efforts to deliver curriculum relevant to current dental practice. University-industry relationships are becoming increasingly common to incorporate innovation and technology into curriculum to enrich students learning experience. Such relationships may be problematic as curriculum control is exposed to external influence. Thirteen dental faculty from Dalhousie University participated in semi-structured interviews for a qualitative study using constructivist grounded theory methodology to develop substantive theory. Thematic analysis uncovered two primary themes related to 1. tension between authoritarianism and entrepreneurialism and 2. influence of industry on pre-existing educational dichotomies. Academe as stewards of the profession was the category central to the theory The Power of Self Control and explained using a symbolic interactionist perspective. en
