These are the three cornerstones that, when used together, provide a strong basis for all personalized client decisions. The skills taught in this book include identifying, appraising, and using scientific evidence. But that is simply one part of the process. This evidence must then be applied to clinical decision making [...] by asking three specific questions about evidence: (1) Are the results valid? (2) What are the results? (3) Can the results be applied to my patient? The book is divide into two main parts. The first section addresses the specific skills needed to implement an evidence-based approach in your practice, while the second section addresses current evidence on topics of interest to the dental hygienist."  Taken from Preface, vii
