Charity Appeal for Dental Photographs

Today we have a guest blog from Karen Coates – a Dental Advisor for The British Dental Health Foundation.
The BDHF is looking to expand their range of printed materials to include factsheets, bookmarks and flip guards. They currently purchase these from the American Dental Association to distribute, but unfortunately the information is not always ideal for the UK market.
‘Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful break over the festive holidays and have had an excellent start to 2012.

On behalf of the Foundation I am looking for dental practices everywhere to dig out and send us any archive photos to help us produce and improve our range of educational resources.

We are searching for any dental photography featuring your patient and their mouths. Any images which demonstrate a number of oral health conditions e.g. 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!

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 you or your Practice can assist us in collecting these clinical photographs, please contact me on 01788 539784 or send me an email at, I’d be thrilled to hear from you!

Best wishes,
Please get in touch with Karen if you or anyone at your practice can help!
