How to use evidence-based principles to achieve and maintain oral health.
Dr. Richard Niederman
More than 500 new human clinical trials confront clinicians each year. Deciding which to believe and which to ignore is a significant challenge.
Here we provide a 3-step method to quickly cull the wheat from the chaff. The 3-steps are:
- Asking a focused question,
- Searching for the best evidence,
- Critically appraising the evidence.
This seminar will walk participants through the 3-step method. It will demonstrate how, with practice, this process can be accomplished in less than 5 minutes.
We will use as an example triclosan copolymer toothpaste and gingivitis as a case study.
New products and methods range from diagnostics, to preventive measures, to treatment materials and methods. The methods can be applied to all of these topics, as well as personal clinical issues and questions.
Participants will learn:
- How to ask answerable questions,
- How to rapidly (<5 minutes) find the best evidence,
- How to extrapolate from case studies using triclosan copolymer toothpaste and gingivitis to personal clinical issues and questions.
