Member Benefit Spotlight
The Dental Trauma Guide – Evidence-Based Treatment Guide In 2005, researchers at the University Hospital of Copenhagen started the Dental Trauma Guide to capitalize on an extensive dental trauma injuries database they had collected. The extensive catalog of trauma data is used to produce prognosis estimates for different injuries, and allows comparison of competing treatments.

Due to a loss of funding the Dental Trauma Guide is now a membership-based website. For AAPD members, the fee (normally $25 per year) is a nominal $7 per user per year.

To subscribe:
• Go to
• Select the number of individual users that need to have access to the Dental Trauma Guide
• You now have access to the unique services of the Dental Trauma Guide.
