Critical Summaries

A critical summary helps you to quickly learn the principal findings of a systematic review. The critical summary offers a peer-reviewed opinion concerning the quality of the review and the validity of the interpretations, and it offers additional insights into the implications for clinicians.

A critical summary includes: 1) a brief summary of the Systematic Review; 2) a critique of the systematic review methods as well as the identified evidence; and 3) implications for clinicians.

The critical summaries on this website have been prepared by ADA Evidence Reviewers who have experience in EBD or peer-reviewed scientific publications. To search for critical summaries, please visit the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry's Evidence Database via the button below:
