WHAT IS EVIDENCE-BASED DENTISTRY?

Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is "an approach to oral health care that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient’s oral and medical condition and history, with the dentist’s clinical expertise and the patient’s treatment needs and preferences".- The American Dental Association (ADA)

" Evidence-based dentistry is a way of thinking, a philosophy, a paradigm, if you will, of the practice of dentistry for the New Millennium” -Chiappelli et al. (2003) Evidence-based Practice in Dentistry: Benefit or Hindrance
