There are so many dental terms and websites, where should I go to find accurate information?

The American Dental Association’s website is highly recommended. They update their glossary of terms regularly and can be visited here: http://www.ada.org/public/resources/glossary.asp

I’ve heard of clinical trials and want to see if my dental case would qualify for any open research studies. Where do I find out more?

The US National Institutes of Health houses ClinicalTrials.gov which is a website registry of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. ClinicalTrials.gov gives you information about a trial’s purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details. This information should be used in conjunction with advice from health care professionals, such as Dr. Salituro or his associates.

I am scared to go to the dentist. How is your office different?
