FLEITES RAMOS, Yanet; VIZCAINO ESCOBAR, Annia Esther  y  CRESPO HURTADO, Eric. Fuzzy logic: a useful quantitative methodology to determine consensus among dental science experts. Medicentro Electrónica [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp.305-314.  Epub 01-Abr-2021. ISSN 1029-3043.

Fuzzy logic tries to copy the way humans make decisions. It has been used for several years, specifically in the medical field, in studies applied to areas such as biomedical engineering, expert systems, epidemiological models and diagnostic systems. A questionnaire was prepared to measure the quality of life related to oral health in Cuban adolescents; Fuzzy logic was used in the validation process based on expert criteria, using the PROCESA_CE (2013) software. According to expert agreements, the null hypothesis that there is no community of preference among them was rejected, for a significance level of 0.01; this guaranteed, with 99% reliability, that it is possible to make assessments based on their consensuses. In addition, the existence of a consensus of five in all items was corroborated.

Palabras clave : fuzzy logic; peer review; oral medicine.
