This is Dentistry makes it easier for everyone to get the dental information they need and want – in the most convenient ways possible.

What sets This is Dentistry apart from other online dentistry sources?
Studies show that a significant percentage of the UK public (approximately 25-50 %!) do not visit the dentist, for various reasons. The focus of This is Dentistry is to empower the public with information that is easy to find, and easy to understand. The goal of This is Dentistry is to encourage and invite the public to share their experiences, and to discuss their fears and problems with expert UK dentists – without having to make a commitment to specific treatments. This is Dentistry aims to change the face of dentistry in the UK with the use of social media blogs, Facebook, Twitter and Disqus, and forming a mutually-beneficial dental community consisting of ordinary people and expert UK dentists.

This is Dentistry aims to educate the public with information on the latest innovations and cutting-edge technology in the world of dentistry, so more people will discover that dentistry has made leaps and bounds in treating dental problems in recent years. The latest technology can now make nearly-painless dentistry possible.”

He also said, “There are now more dentists who will go out of their way to make their patients as comfortable as possible, easing their dental fears and anxieties. Dentistry as we know it now recognizes the need for a patient to feel relaxed when it comes to dental treatments, and this is the reason why we have dental hypnotist advisors onboard. We hear of countless stories about people refusing to go even for a routine dental checkup for years, because of the crippling fear that they experience with the mere thought of seeing the dentist.”
