Course Descriptions

Title: Biostatistics, Evidence-Based Dentistry and Science. Who Knows What to Believe?
Length: 2.5 - 3.5 Hours

A highly interactive discussion serves to unfold the basic biostatistics needed by practitioners who seek to make sense of the biomedical literature. This leads into a discussion of the components of evidence-based dentistry with an emphasis (illustrated by likely examples drawn from the literature) on the many sources of bias. This presentation concludes with a discussion of scientific fraud, highlighted against both historical and contemporary interplays between science, politics and public policy.

(with Gilia Rethman RDH, BA, Editorial Director, Dimensions of Dental Hygiene): Evidence-based care... periodontal medicine… inflammation... biofilms… disease classifications… prevention and intervention strategies… are you aware?
