Evidence-Based Dentistry: An Introduction
John Wiley & Sons, Sep 29, 2006 - Medical - 225 pages
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.
