Author information

Department of Epidemiology and Health Promotion, New York University College of Dentistry, New York 10003, USA.


The objective of the current study was to systematically evaluate the existing evidence in relation to the safety, quality, productivity or cost-benefit, and patient satisfaction of the procedures performed by the different groups of dental providers. Due to the diversity of the procedures performed and the outcomes measured, it was not possible to create pooled estimates in a meaningful manner. Therefore, summary results of individual studies are presented and critically evaluated.
