Choosing Wisely, a resource for patients

The American Dental Association is collaborating with Choosing Wisely, an initiative of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, in an effort to help patients make educated choices about health care.  In addition to conversations with their dentist, patients can access evidence-based information on the website to help make informed decisions about dental treatment.  Visit ADA.org or choosingwisely.org to learn more!
