Cochrane Library

In August 2017 (Issue 8), Cochrane Oral Health published:

Updated review - conclusions changed

Cochrane volunteers translate our reviews from English in to other languages to help us make oral health care evidence more widely accessible.

In September 2017 (Issue 9), Cochrane translators produced one oral health review translation in Traditional Chinese, German and Portuguese, and two oral health review translations in Simplified Chinese, Malaysian, Polish, and Russian.
