The AAPD regularly develops, publishes, and disseminates clinical practice guidelines to enhance pediatric dentistry research.

The topic for each clinical practice guideline is recommended by the Evidence-Based Dentistry Committee and approved by the Board of Trustees. Potential topics for consideration by the EBD committee for systematic reviews and or guideline development can be submitted by EBD Committee members

The EBD Committee will monitor the research to identify new evidence that may impact then current recommendations. These recommendations will be updated five years from the time of the last systematic search unless the Evidence-Based Dentistry Committee determines that an earlier revision or update is warranted.
