Focusing CINAHL and PubMed on Dental-Relevant Results

Many of your research topics will be dental in nature by default, such as periodontitis; however, if you have a topic that is broad or are looking up a condition that can impact areas other than the oral cavity, try these filters in CINAHL and PubMed.

Use CINAHL's Advanced Search. Here you'll find the option for Special Interest, and can select Dental Care. Note: this filter is at the bottom of the screen, so be sure to scroll down far enough
