This introduction to Evidence-Based Dentistry provides a much-needed orientation in the subject for students and professionals alike. It is a ground-level book for those seeking to understand evidence-based dentistry and its significance for clinical practice. The book is anchored in the dental literature: the majority of the chapters offer guidance on interpreting a full published paper; where both the subject of the paper and the study design is of relevance to the field of dentistry.

Each chapter is organised in a similar way, providing a structured approach to reading and understanding research articles or commercial product information. In this respect, Evidence-Based Dentistry is designed as an introduction to understanding published research and its implications for the dental surgery; rather than as a guide on undertaking research.

During the years spent as a dental student and while practising as a dentist, it is important to be able to identify risk factors and causes of disease and to assess whether methods of detection, prevention and treatment are effective or not. Throughout their careers, dentists need to know where to obtain information on the management and treatment of patients and interpret this information correctly. They also need to keep abreast of new developments and techniques. Combining this knowledge with clinical experience is essentially evidence-based dentistry. Information can be found in research articles in journals, in textbooks and in reports from professional bodies.
There is, however, an abundance of published research and it can be difficult for the student or dentist to interpret articles and decide whether these would be useful in their work. The ability to do this is central to practising evidence-based dentistry and this book aims to provide an introduction to understanding and interpreting research papers
