I have to say that I am not certain that I would have tried this product on my own, but participating as a product evaluator gives me a chance to put some materials and equipment into use and share my experiences with other clinicians through the Dental Product Shopper?s product evaluations.
I am also a member of the PEARL Network which is an abbreviation for practitioners engaged in applied research and learning. The PEARL Network is a practiced-based research network which is funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institiute of Dental and Craniofacial Research and is organized through New York University?s College of Dentistry. PEARL member dentists conduct clinical studies in the course of routine patient care. The PEARL Network has a very informative website. PEARL Network studies will certainly add to the evidence base in dentistry and positively impact the future of dentistry.
If you are interested in product evaluations or clinical studies consider becoming involved in the greater dental community beyond your own practice.
