Cochrane Oral Health Group needs YOU!

Are you interested in commenting on and getting involved with oral health issues?
The Oral Health Group is recruiting consumers to form part of a Consumer Panel.
Consumers (or patients) will be asked to comment on reviews produced by the Group.
This will help us to help the public by making our plain language summaries more understandable and ensure they are written clearly and without too much jargon.
Our priority area currently is Orthodontics, the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of the face and jaws and the treatment of irregularities of the teeth.
If you’d like to be involved, contact the Oral Health Group’s Consumer Co-ordinator, Ruth Floate.
