Dental teams are being asked to dig into their archives for clinical photos.
The British Dental Health Foundation is appealing to dental practices. hygienists, therapists and oral health educators across the UK to dig out and send it any archive photos to help them produce and improve the charity’s range of educational resources.
Karen Coates, dental advisor for the Foundation, said: ‘We are searching for any dental photography featuring your patient and their mouths.
‘Any images which demonstrate a number of oral health conditions eg: gum disease, dental erosion, decay and dry mouth. In addition, we are also looking for pictures of children’s and teen’s mouths and teeth – our list is long but we’ll really appreciate any help in which you could give us!
She added: ‘Any pictures you send into us will help to produce our flip guides, posters, wallcharts, facts cards and Tell Me About range, which are seen in thousands of practices every year.
‘Of course, any images we do use, we’ll make sure that you’re fully informed and get the credit and acknowledgement you deserve as a key source.’
If any practice can assist in collecting these clinical photographs, call Karen on 01788 539784 or email Karen@dentalhealth.org.
