ORACODENT aims to present the dental and allied
professions with a continuously evolving encyclopaedia with a primary
focus on oral medicine and oral pathology. It belongs among a new
generation of information resources characterized by being process
oriented. In contrast to printed items and most other electronic
encyclopaedias / learning aids on the market, it has been developed to
allow continuous amendments and additions on a daily basis.
ORACODENT is designed as an easy to access electronic
chair-side reference, which primarily has its focus on everyday
patients, but also on many uncommon disorders encountered in oral /
dental care. The encyclopaedia exists as
interconnected CD and WEB versions in which basic data are organized in
structured documents; presently some 1900 which together with around
1300 images focus on the subjects or oral pathology and oral medicine.
The documents are knit together with over 14 000 internal and 3.300
external Internet links; the latter largely as references to abstracts
in the Medline database in which ”a click” will access a wealth of
further reports and reviews.
ORACODENT relates its data to international classifications
(WHO’s ICD-10, ICD-DA3 and ATC). The content is serviced by a permanent
editorial board interacting with clinicians / researchers and following
the scientific literature and recommended textbooks. Enacted changes
become accessible in the WEB version within 24 hours.
