Evidence-based care of musculoskeletal facial pain: Implications for the clinical science of dentistry

Karen Raphael, Joseph J. Marbach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors assert that advancement of dentistry as a clinical science has been hampered by a failure to practice evidence-based care, which incorporates principles derived from clinical epidemiology. The schism between the cultures of researcher and practitioner was most evident at a recent National Institutes of Health Technology Assessment Conference on the Management of Temporomandibular Disorders.
