Evidence-based practice, why do we need that? When we're practicing dentistry, many times we're used to hearing our colleagues say, "It works in my hands," or "I believe in this material," or "This is how I've been doing it for years."
And usually, we feel that it really does work in our hands. So, the question is, why do we need evidence? What is all the fuss around evidence-based practice? One of my first personal experiences with this issue was when I planned to implement in a very large multi clinic, dental setting, posterior resin restorations to be used across the board instead of amalgam restorations.
