The challenge, access, risks, and deficits of evidence-based dentistry.

Abstract

The ultimate goal of evidence-based health care (EBH) and evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is the improvement of health of our patients, our practices, and our families. The mechanics of balancing these in the face of overwhelming and increasing information is a challenge. With this challenge come the benefits of access to knowledge that can improve health, the legal risks for inattention, and arguments to the contrary. This conceptual introduction does not provide the truth--it provides one viewpoint. Clinicians will need to decide for themselves if and when they might (or might not) chose to embrace an evidence-based approach to healthcare improvement.
