Journal articles

Two articles outlining D3G, the Chalky Teeth Campaign, and "the Molar Hypomineralisation problem" have appeared in highly regarded academic journals recently. Importantly, these articles have broken new ground by introducing D3G's "translational terminology" ("D3s", "chalky teeth", "chalky molars" etc) to the academic literature following successful road-testing on the public and practitioners. This advance provides a rare example of "reverse translation" – most talk today is about the other direction (converting academic advances to public good), but clearly both directions matter.

D3G's "Chalky Teeth" campaign

August 2013

Pleasingly, our adoption of "chalky teeth" as a public-friendly term for Molar Hypomin (and other D3s) seemed to gain immediate acceptance from the broader media and public. Within a week, the "1-in-6 kids have chalky teeth" story had been picked up nationally (TV, radio, papers) and internationally, leading to >40 reports worldwide. This exposure led to a major surge in website traffic and correspondence received from across the sector.
