Clinical Evidence Resources

Developing a clinical question is an important part of Evidence-Based Dentistry. Your clinical question will help you define your research needs and organize your search terms.

A good clinical question will:

  • Save time when researching
  • Keep the focus directly on the patient’s need
  • Suggest the appropriate form that a useful answer may take


Please take a moment to think about where you typically find information to answer your clinical questions. [You’ll refer back to your answer later in the tutorial.]
