How is the Dental Elf doing?


The Dental Elf site published its first blog back in June 2011 with the aim of providing access to reliable summaries of new research and guidance for dental professionals. Since then we have published more than 1850 blogs and while we have received positive and negative comments over the years we have not given our users the opportunity of providing feedback on the site.

Consequently, if you have 10-15 minutes to spare, we would be grateful if could complete this short questiThe Dental Elf will help you keep up to date with the latest evidence-based publications relevant to dental practice.onnaire.
