Evidence-based dentistry: an introduction

Hurst, Dominic / Chong, BS

Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is a ubiquitous term, commonly found in research publications, appearing in books and included in manufacturers’ sale literature. What really is EBD? Is the term being applied correctly? Do readers have a proper understanding of its meaning? Is the term used purely to render support and to make claims more scientific sounding? This easy-to-follow article is intended to demystify and to serve as an introduction to EBD, to provide an explanation of the background process of searching, appraising and applying the evidence to everyday clinical practice. By understanding the EBD approach, it will empower clinicians to question and consider the use of current best evidence in decision-making on the management of individual patients and, ultimately, lead to improved treatment outcome.

Keywords: EBD, endodontics, research
