This part of the world has seen relatively less change than the western civilization and are, to some extent, less superior in terms of practice and teaching learning techniques.

The principles of evidence based practice provide a systematic framework for relying on scientific evidence in conjunction with clinical experience and judgment to answer questions and stay current with innovations in dentistry. Learning and mastering the critical thinking skills associated with evidence based methodologies is a key component in translating the discoveries of basic and clinical research into the realities of practice.
