Additional Posting Guidelines For The Support Section

This is a peer support forum. Please do not offer or conduct online therapy (this applies to both professionals and laypeople). Sharing your experiences, and what has helped you, is fine of course!

Dentistry is not mandatory. Avoid putting pressure on anyone. Everyone has the right to go at their own pace, and also the right not to see a dentist.

Please refrain from posting dentistry related images or videos in the support section.

If you start a thread in the support and journal section, provide updates by replying to the thread, rather than starting a new thread (unless it's a completely new topic). This will make it easier for other members to follow your story.

We want you to feel safe here. If you receive any PMs from other members which strike you as odd or inappropriate, don't hesitate to contact the adminstrators, or e-mail [email protected]

Make sure you've read our overall Forum Rules and Guidelines!

Just bumping this because it was showing a 2007 date, and thus probably wouldn't be read!

The guidelines have been amended over the years, and the post above is an up-to-date version :).
