Dental students Laura Tan and Su Min Lai represented Dundee Dental School’s Wikipedia Editing Team at the British Association of the Study of Community Dentistry Conference (BASCD) last month, on Thursday 21 November 2019.
Their poster was titled “The Wikipedia Collaboration of Dental Schools”, a student led project aiming to promote dissemination of credible and unbiased dental information on Wikipedia to the public informing them about oral diseases and prevention strategies by maintaining, updating and expanding dental related articles.
The poster was awarded The BASCD Borrow Foundation Early Careers Prize, a prestigious award recognizing oral health improvement, and strong engagements with the principles of Dental Public Health.
The Dundee Wiki Team will be organizing the 4th Annual Conference at the Dalhousie Building (Lecture Theatre 3) on the 7 March 2020. It is free of charge and all are welcome.
