In an era of evidence-based care, the question of how much evidence is needed to implement changes into practice becomes central to dentistry's recognition that dental caries management must change to a focus on risk-based, patient-centered disease management rather than just restorative care. This article reviews some of the opportunities, needs, and challenges involved in the adoption and implementation of caries management strategies into everyday clinical practice.
