There are several very good dental education sites for patients. One of the best is the American Dental Association website. The ADA has much information available as a pdf download. Another very good web site is the Academy of General Dentistry. If you are looking for medical information first try Medline, this site is maintained by the Nation Library of Medicine. An interesting site that checks questionable treatments and claims is Quackwatch. If you hear someone make an outrageous claim, this is the place to find whether there is any science behind the claim. On the web the patient may can find much good information, but there is also dubious information out there. If one sticks to reputable sites, then one can be safe with that information.
