Evidence-based Dentistry (EBD) is “an approach to oral healthcare 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).
EBD has developed rapidly in the past 20 years. Generation of high quality scientific evidence to solve clinical dental problems and development of clinical guidelines have been important contributions from oral health research. This conference will review the development and current status of EBD and how EBD has impacted on clinical dental practice.
