Abstract: 

Introduction: Evidence-based dentistry is the combination of individual clinical experiences with the highest-quality evidence available as the result of systematic studies. Evidence-based dentistry is an approach in which the clinician uses the best evidence available to make the most appropriate decision for the patient. In this descriptive study, the knowledge, attitude and self-assessment of Tabriz dental school residents were examined on evidence-based dentistry in the academic year 2014-2015.
Methods: All residents of Tabriz Dentistry Faculty (100 in total) were enrolled in the study. The data collection tool was a questionnaire, and the validity of the questionnaire was determined in previous studies. To determine the reliability of the questionnaire, it was distributed among the 20 residents in a pilot study. Descriptive statistical methods were used to study the data obtained. Chi-square, t test, and Kruskal-Wallis tests were used to assess the relationship between variables using SPSS 20.
Results: The results showed that the level of residents’ knowledge on evidence-based dentistry was moderate and 94.4% of residents had a positive attitude toward EBD. The highest and lowest self-assessments were related to the terms PubMed and Cochrane Collaboration (95% CI: 29.27-30.73, 42.06-43.32, 28.69-31.09, respectively).
Conclusion: Given the increasing importance of evidence-based dentistry and considering the moderate knowledge of the residents on the topic, a need is felt for proper planning to teach it at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences. Considering dentists’ positive attitude toward EBD, it seems that there is an appropriate background for EBD education in the country.
