DENT 1124 - Introduction to Evidence Based Dentistry

[29 Hours]
Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is an approach to oral healthcare that requires the judicious integration of systematic assessments of clinically relevant scientific evidence, relating to the patient’s oral and medical condition and history, with the dentist’s clinical expertise and the patient’s treatment needs and preferences. This course will teach students how to identify, retrieve, and evaluate information for research and patient care. Students will also learn basic statistical concepts which they will apply to the analysis of research articles. By acquiring critical thinking skills, students will begin to understand principles of evidence-based dentistry.
