If you would like to reach out to your patients about direct-to-consumer orthodontics through your social media channels, this toolkit provides some images and suggested words that could help you.
Direct-to-consumer orthodontics - social media toolkit for dental practices
In May 2021, the GDC published an updated statement in relation to remote, or ‘direct-to-consumer’ orthodontics.
Alongside, the GDC also published:
- information for dental professionals to support professional judgement
- information for patients to support informed decision making about treatment.
Dental practices have close links with their patients and because of this can help to highlight the considerations patients should make before deciding on whether treatment is right and safe for them.
If you would like to reach out to your patients with these important messages, perhaps through your social media channels or as part of wider direct communications with your patients, our toolkit provides some images and suggested words that could help you do this.
