Michael Rudmann, DMD, MS
Never before have dental providers been so bombarded with information from so many directions. The demands of modern dental practice and the challenges of everyday life make it difficult to keep up with current science, know where to turn to for practical clinical guidance, and separate fact from fiction. This presentation will offer an overview of evidence-based clinical pearls from across the general dentistry spectrum and recommend practical tips for the busy practitioner who wants to improve their ability to read and evaluate dental literature and transfer this knowledge from paper or screen to their clinical practice.
At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:
1. Discuss several recent clinically relevant, evidence-based recommendations in the fields of pain management, restorative dentistry, preventive dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery.
2. Describe necessary criteria for an impactful systematic review and/or meta-analysis.
3. Develop a practical and effective plan to regularly and systematically review current dental literature, determine level of evidence, and thoughtfully incorporate new modalities and materials into your practice.
