Ha, dead wrong. "Taught in dental schools" is not the issue (dental
schools are inherently conservative and should be; their most important
role is not only teaching clinical and technical understanding and
skills, but also to teach students to critically evaluate research and
see through marketing hype). "Cutting edge" dentistry shouldn't mean
ignorance of laboratory or clinical research. It should mean that
treatment has its basis in credible and rationally sound research.
What is "cutting edge" should not mean (because it is unethical,
potentially harmful, and fraudulent) is that you are rendering
treatment based on anecdotal evidence or what you *feel* is right.
Judgement in treatment decisions should have at its basis sound,
research using the scientific method. That's the best protection for
our patients and for us.
