This continuing education course is intended for general dentists and hygienists. This CE course is intended to give the dental practitioner a helpful guide that may be used to teach patients to perform an oral examination.
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. This course builds on the previous course, "Using Research for Clinical Decision-Making: Elements of a Research Report", that described the various components of a research report.
