The first place most people go for health information is the internet. While the internet has plenty of accurate and reliable information, it has equally as much misinformation. There’s a reason “Dr. Google” has become a common joke for being the go-to place to receive frightening diagnoses for often common health problems. More alarming is the rapid propagation of health myths on social media platforms like Instagram and Tiktok. It’s no wonder many readers are confused about where to get reliable health information. The bottom line is health information is ever-changing, and users need a reliable go-to place to receive up-to-date information that’s backed by experts.Since graduate school, I have been passionate about oral health education and dental public health. I look forward to helping get the most accurate and reliable information about oral health diagnosis and treatment to online users.
