Evidence Based Summaries in Dentistry
Evidence Based Summaries in Dentistry is Midentistry's in-house bulletin that publishes on a six-monthly basis plain language summaries of systematic reviews conducted in the field of minimally-invasive dentistry. All selected systematic review articles have been previously published in high-quality peer-reviewed dental journal, listed in PubMed/MEDLINE. Systematic reviews have been recommended as providing the best source of evidence to guide clinical decisions and healthcare policy, and they receive more citations as non-systematic reviews in peer-reviewed journals. However, they are also very technical by nature and make difficult reading for the general dental practitioner. Often, the findings of a lengthy systematic review can be condensed into a few single sentence that provide all information necessary for daily clinical practice. To give such easily discernable information to clinicians is the purpose of plain language summaries. These summaries by itself do not replace the function and merits of full systematic review articles. However, they do ease the wider comprehension and dissemination of its key findings.
