We're on the lookout for members to contribute to the DDU journal. By writing for us about the issues that make a difference to you, you can share your experiences and expertise with an audience of your peers.

Is there a particular dento-legal topic you're qualified in and want to talk about? Perhaps there are ethical issues about clinical practice you'd like to explore, or aspects of the dental profession that you feel might raise issues around dental professionals' health and well-being.

Or maybe the DDU's helped you through a complaint or a claim and you want to let others know what happened. Members' case studies allow dental professionals to be better prepared and informed about the process, especially if they've not been through it themselves.

Why write for us?

Our team of experts are perfectly placed to offer guidance and advice on a range of dento-legal topics, but we've had lots of fantastic content from others as well and we'd love to expand on that. By writing for us, you can help make the journal even more helpful to you and your peers by focusing on the issues that matter to you.

Previously, we've heard from Martyn Green, who wrote about dental professionals' duty to raise child protection concerns. Denise Mattin examined the challenges of domiciliary working, while Chirag Mehta offered his thoughts on how to get the best out of the early days of dental foundation training.

We've also had articles written by experts in their fields on topics as varied as cone beam computed tomography, dental professionals' occupational health and limited treatment orthodontics.

Get in touch

Our focus is on dento-legal and ethical issues rather than clinical ones, so it's worth bearing this in mind. But we welcome any ideas for content that you think would be appreciated by fellow members. And if your story is chosen for publication, we'll also send you a gift to say thank you.
