What is Evidence-Based Dentistry?

EBD is the Integration of:

  1. Best clinical evidence
  2. Clinical judgment and
  3. Patient values and circumstances to improve health care

Why EBD?

  • There are more than 500 oral health clinical trials published each year in each clinical specialty, in more than 30 journals. This is more that 1 article per day, 365 days per year!
  • To stay current, each day, a clinician would need to identify, obtain, read, appraise, and implement 1 new article – an impossible task.
  • Our goal is to simplify this task by providing the best evidence distilled from the world´s literature.
