Abstract

Dr. G.V. Black's head would spin if as the father of modern dentistry he saw the innovations in dental equipment for today's general practice settings. New products emerge continuously; therefore, selecting and obtaining the latest equipment to improve clinical outcomes can be a challenge for clinicians practicing chairside. Sources of product evaluation are changing with the rise in digital communication and the decrease in trade show attendance. This course aims to sort the available research on these topics and provide solid selection criteria for choosing, procuring, and purchasing evidence-based dental equipment for clinical practice settings.
