“..we should continue to be guided by an evidence-based dentistry philosophy to plan care that results in doing the right thing, done right, at the right time, for the right person..”

Dentistry is moving away from evidence-based standards

Dental practices are feeling increasing pressure to ignore the best standards-of-care. For example:

I believe that this undesired behaviour is symptomatic of how money works in the dental industry. My goal with DentalTips.org is to disrupt that trend and return to sanity.

Where is the evidence for my treatment recommendations?

We should expect that publicly funded research is widely and freely available. For a variety of reasons, open access to research is not the norm, and paywalls to research inhibits the communication of treatment rationales. It is in your best interests to be well-informed about treatment options, procedures, and outcomes before proceeding with any treatment. The mission of DentalTips.org is to present streamlined objective evidence for dental treatments, so Patients can make well-informed decisions for the betterment of their oral health.
