Terms and


Our aim at The Online Dentist is to provide honest, clear, simple information on dental health issues. All of our advice is written by qualified health professionals and is supported by the available evidence.

The Site is not intended to replace the need for advice from a medical or dental professional. The materials on the Site cannot and should not be used as a basis for diagnosis or choice of treatment.

We are not able to advise on specific individual’s concerns or treatment as this would require a consultation and examination in person. You should seek advice from a health professional that is specific to you. Our advice will compliment this.

The Site does not feature any advertising. We are unbiased towards any specific brands or products. We have no commercial support for the Site but this will be clearly declared if this ever changes.

We cannot comment on individual dentists’ treatments or any differences between NHS and private dentistry. We are not able to advise on individual dentists’ fees as these can be set by each clinician and reflect their cost of business and level of expertise.
