MedLinePlus: Dental Health

Drawing on the very fine resources of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, this particular section of the MedLine Plus website provides a number of high-quality resources dealing with the area of dental health. Dental practitioners, students in the field, and the general web-browsing public will want to look at the content guide on the left-hand side of the homepage for starters. Here, they can quickly locate areas of specific interest, including prevention, nutrition, and specific conditions dealing with dental health. This guide to the site's dental health materials is complemented nicely by a "Latest News" feature, which includes reports from a variety of dental health organizations and news wire services. Finally, visitors can also use their built-in "Go Local" search engine feature to learn about services and providers for dental health in their particular geographic locale.
