THE AUTHORS are Dr & Dr (Mrs) O.F BANJO- husband and wife, duo of “Dental Channel NG” – an educative Nigeria Dental Blog. Both of us are Nigeria-trained dentists educating Nigerians as best as we know about the dental health and profession. Being young dentists and bloggers, our goal is creating necessary awareness about dental profession among Nigerians and to stimulate Nigerians’ interests on dental education using this platform to focus on providing in-depth information about dental health and hygiene, dental problems, their solutions, preventive measures with blog articles and self-explanatory pictures and videos. Dental Channel NG is a highly useful tool for the public in understanding their teeth and dentistry which they have feared so long.

Certainly, there is no adequate awareness about dental health care in Nigeria and this has seriously affected the public perception of the profession and good utilisation of dental healthcare facilities. We’re not famous dental stars in the country, or even full-time specialists in the dental world, however, we think that educating and informing the Nigeria citizens who have access to internet services about their dental health can offer insight into the dental world and thereby improving their oral/ general health and prolong their life span.
