General dentists are responsible for preventing, evaluating, diagnosing, and treating oral problems, as well as maintaining the function and aesthetics of the teeth. Many oral diseases and anomalies can be signs of more serious illnesses. Patients may be referred to their primary care physician or a specialist for additional examination, or vice versa for treatment, by a general dentist.
The basic goal of evidence-based practise is to improve health-care quality. It assists in making a clinical decision based on the most up-to-date and cutting-edge research as well as the best accessible evidence. Evidence-based dentistry combines most effective and widely available evidence with clinical competence owing to the needs and preferences of patients.
