Using an Evidence-based Approach to Making Patient Recommendations for Power Toothbrushes

Using an Evidence-based Approach to Making Patient Recommendations for Power Toothbrushes (ce648) - Introduction
Introduction – Power Toothbrushes

Patients are more educated and asking more questions about their oral health. Dental professionals today can be overwhelmed by the number and variety of toothbrushes regularly surfacing on the market and the many differing technologies. All of these advances oblige dental professionals to seek information that will enable them to make the best product recommendations based on proven clinical effectiveness and gentleness, their own clinical experience, and patient preferences.
