Main Description
All professionals engaged in oral healthcare are aware of the need for the best available information for decision making. For the first time, this text explains the impact of a highly-systematized approach on clinical practice. Known as evidence-based dentistry, this text offers a complete profile of EBD, including how to implement it in practice, the implications for training and special challenges. Both dentists and patients are becoming more aware of the need to provide information on the effectiveness of dental care prevention and treatment regimes, and Evidence Based Dentistry for Effective Practice provides that guidance.
