Which websites can you trust? Who wrote them?
Often the dental qualifications of the writer aren't obvious. And sadly, I've come across many sources giving dental health advice that's just plain wrong. They have been written by people with little dental training, or worse, no dental training at all! It's just their own personal opinions!
I can say this in all truth... because I'm a dentist myself!
My name is Dr Richard Mitchell. I've been a dentist since 1979, working in the United Kingdom, Barbados, Germany, Australia and Spain. That means I have almost 40 years of experience in general dentistry! Click here for more about me...
Over the past 40 years of dentistry I have seen EVERYTHING in the 5 countries that I have worked in! I've written this website to give honest and reliable dental advice, that doesn't depend on you being a patient of mine. This website is FULL of IMPARTIAL and STRAIGHTFORWARD advice all about teeth, gums, jaws, and more. . . . I also want to explain my knowledge as simply as I can... what better way than online?
I've tried to cover ALL the questions that my patients frequently ask me. I have found that people are generally interested in just 3 things when it comes to teeth:
Actually, there's a 4th one too!
I have two e-books that give extensive and detailed information on two topics - The Toothache Survival Guide AND The Complete Denture Guide. Both e-books are on offer at just $9.99 each! AND you get my two secret reports on "How To Find A Great Dentist" and "How To Get A Celebrity Smile". These two reports ALONE give you information you will not find anywhere else!
MY most recent review is a test of the Braun Oral B Electric Toothbrush. Read all about it - I think it's a great brush.
Quite a few people are terrified of the thought of visiting a dentist - here's a link to my page about Dental Phobia for nervous patients and those with a dental phobia. There's information about how to deal with a dental phobia, options for treatment, and links to dental hypnosis downloads!
A lot of people contact me for advice about pain and swelling after getting a tooth extracted or having a dental implant put in. So my latest page gives some information about the various types of Jaw Bone Infection. I hope it proves to be of some help to those folks seeking information about infections of the jaw bones.
I have also just started a section on
Lyme Disease after I discovered that jaw bone pain and tooth pain
can be a side effect! This is also featured in My latest Newsletter,
April 2017. All the latest news!
I've written some pages on this website about things that can cause problems with chewing, such as dental infections and wisdom teeth.
There are also pages about all about dentures,
migraine headaches, and
If you look at the Navigation Menu on the left side of this screen,
you will find the main areas that I have divided the website into. If
you can't find what you are looking for, just use the Search box
at the top of the page!
I am here to give you the straight and honest dental health information that you need to make the best decisions about your dental health. The advice I give in these pages is not influenced by how much money I might make from my recommendations! This is the HONEST website!

If you have any questions, don't be shy! Just contact me and I'll get back to you with an answer. BUT please remember that I CANNOT comment on your own individual DENTAL HEALTH problems. Your own dentist has your full dental history, your X-rays, and can look in your mouth. However, any questions of a general nature are welcome.
HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL SOON BE INTRODUCING A PERSONALIZED ONLINE CONSULTING SERVICE, to offer people a personal, customized advice service, ONE-on-ONE. There will be a fair and reasonable charge for this service, which will be by email initially and by Skype in due course. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DETAILS SOON!
