Evidence-Based Dentistry Web Site Now Available in its Introductory Stage!

Evidence-Based Dentistry Web Site Now Available in its Introductory Stage!


Incorporate the latest evidence into the clinical decision-making process with the ADA's new Evidence-Based Dentistry Web site at ebd.ada.org!

The Evidence-Based Dentistry (EBD) Web site is a new site by dentists for dentists and their patients. It gives you access to the most current, clinically relevant information from one centralized location.

Key features include:

* Database of systematic reviews—currently over 1,300 reviews, which will update quarterly

* Critical summaries of systematic reviews—one-page synopses of key elements of a systematic review with clinical implications written by practicing dentists trained in critical assessment of published systematic reviews

* Clinical recommendations—Useful tools that can be applied in making evidence-based clinical treatment decisions

* Links to evidence-based dentistry resources—Links to outside resources including tutorials, glossaries and databases

Visit ebd.ada.org and access current, clinically relevant scientific information—when you want it, where you want it. Please keep in mind that this launch is an introductory stage and we appreciate your feedback and patience as we establish this unique resource to its fullest potential.

The Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) is also launching a new feature called Critical Summaries in which one Critical Summary per month from the EBD Web site will be published. Look for it in your March issue of JADA.
