Evidence Based Practice
With over 30 years of experience in cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry and sedation dentistry we're some of the best in Philadelphia.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) is an interdisciplinary approach to clinical practice.It started in medicine as evidence-based medicine (EBM) and spread to other fields such as audiology, speech-language pathology, dentistry, nursing, child life specialty, psychology, social work, education, library and information science.
EBP is traditionally defined in terms of a “three legged stool” integrating three basic principles:
- The best available research evidence bearing on whether and why a treatment works,
- Clinical expertise (clinical judgment and experience) to rapidly identify each patient’s unique health state and diagnosis, their individual risks and benefits of potential interventions, and
- Client preferences and values
