This introduction to Evidence-Based Dentistry provides amuch-needed orientation in the subject for students andprofessionals alike. It is a ground-level book for those seeking tounderstand evidence-based dentistry and its significance forclinical practice. The book is anchored in the dental literature:the majority of the chapters offer guidance on interpreting a fullpublished paper; where both the subject of the paper and the studydesign is of relevance to the field of dentistry.


Each chapter is organised in a similar way, providing astructured approach to reading and understanding research articlesor commercial product information. In this respect, Evidence-BasedDentistry is designed as an introduction to understanding publishedresearch and its implications for the dental surgery; rather thanas a guide on undertaking research.


  • Incorporates topical published papers in order to rpovideworked examples

  • Explains the most6 common forms of research used indentistry

  • Unlocks basic statistical and epidemiological concepts, alongwith key terms

  • Enables the reader to identify the research question, assessaspects of study design, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses ofpapers and understand their clinical relevance

  • Tables, boxes and figures are used extensively to present coreinformation. Useful templates are also provided, which readers mayuse/adapt for analysis, including study clubs.
