In 2015 Cochrane was raising awareness of the poor quality of dental content on Wikipedia. Determined to make a change, a group of students at Dundee Dental School took the initiative to form an editing group. Being eager to involve the wider dental community, we expanded the initiative to involve numerous other dental schools across the globe. The Wikipedia Collaboration of Dental Schools was formed in 2017 and currently involves Dundee, New York University, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Manchester, Belfast, Barts, and Sheffield dental schools. To date, 247 articles have been improved, 279,000 words have been added in three different languages, impacting 27.1 million readers.
Our goal is to make make evidence-based dental information easily accessible to all. We welcome any interested individuals or schools join our efforts. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
