Welcome to the UT Health Science Center San Antonio School of Dentistry Oral Health searchable CAT library. A CAT is a “Critically Appraised Topic” related to a clinical dental problem. Our students and faculty work together to find and report the strongest, most recent, and most relevant evidence pertaining to dental diagnosis and treatment. This online library rapidly provides users with up-to-date evidence-based answers to focused clinical questions. The CATs are updated as new research is published.

We invite you to search the CAT library by key words or browse by dental specialty area. You will find a place on each CAT to leave a brief comment if you wish. Your comment may be related to your clinical experience and/or to new published evidence related to the question. Your comment will become a part of the CAT that subsequent users will be able to read.

We invite you to leave general comments about the library by clicking on the Contact Us button to the left. Leave a suggestion or just let us know what you think.

The CATs Oral Health Library was established with a grant from the NIDCR, NIH R25DE018663 and is currently supported, in part by U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration Grant D84HP19953.
