Ten years ago today we published our first Dental Elf blog (Dental Elf – 21 Jun 2011) as part of the National Elf Service . The National Elf Service was developed by our friends at Minervation Ltd an evidence-based healthcare consultancy based in Oxford.
Our aim since the beginning has been to help colleagues keep up to date by providing brief summaries of recently published evidence. We focus on systematic reviews, high-quality primary studies and guidance.
Since June 2011 we have published 1626 blog posts covering a range of categories (see table).
|Category||Number of blogs|
|Cleft Lip & Palate||13|
|Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery||216|
|Oral Medicine & Pathology||157|
|Tooth Surface Loss||14|
*Some blogs appear in more than one category
The first Dental Elf blog was written by Derek Richards, then a Dental Public Health Consultant supported by a small group of colleagues over the years.
If you are interested in getting involved with writing for the Dental Elf please email Derek Richards and introduce yourself.
