Evidence-Based Dentistry

What is the ADA Clinical Practice Guidelines and Dental Evidence?

ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry – helping dentists improve patient care through informed decision-making. Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is about providing dentists with the best evidence so they can make informed treatment decisions and improve the quality of dental care.

It’s an approach to making clinical decisions that integrates three important aspects of clinical practice:

  1. A dentist’s expertise;
  2. A patient’s needs and preferences; and
  3. The best available scientific evidence.
