Following the growing influence of Evidence – Based Medicine on the critical evaluation of studies, this paper was prepared to put guidelines in dental research and reach the Best Evidence and preventing any possible bias. Evidence – Based Dentistry (EBD) is defined by the ADA as a skill in which the clinician will amalgamate information and apply to structure different forms of studies with Best Evidences without any bias. External validity of the results of in vivo and in vitro studies results highly depend on the strength of evidences. The only form of studies which can influence scientific and clinical decision making are considered as beings systematic reviews (Overview, Meta analysis). These studies criticize and evaluate multiple controlled randomized clinical trials (RCT). Appreciation of the Evidence – Based Dentistry principles can define the pathway of studies to reach a systematic review and to demonstrate the validity of results gained and their role on scientific and clinical decision making.
