Wikipedia dental article updates incorporate Cochrane Oral Health evidence

Since January 2016, Dundee Dental School students (led by graduate Nour Geres) have been updating dental articles on Wikipedia with evidence from Cochrane reviews to ensure Wikipedia's dental content is not only accurate, but evidence-based.

Example articles that have benefited from the Dundee team's edits include those on dental sealants, glass ionomer cement, dental extraction, and leukoplakia.

The team are urging other dental schools to collaborate in editing Wikipedia dental articles, and those interested are encouraged to contact the editing project's coordinator, Nour Geres.

Visit Scottish Dental for more information about the project, and our editorial base blog to identify some of the Cochrane Oral Health reviews cited in the edited articles.
