Using research for clinical decision-making: evaluating a research report. Academic Article uri icon


  • Oral healthcare professionals need to ascertain the quality of journals and to read articles critically, distinguishing good from poor research. The oral health practitioner must continually review dental research articles to learn about new options for therapy and oral health products. How does the practitioner know when he/she should incorporate these new procedures into their practice? This continuing education course will present guidelines for critically evaluating the research and for making decisions about how to apply the research findings to clinical practice.
