Dental-y Pinterest boards

A snapshot of Operation Smile's boards on Pinterest

If you’re a dental student, the word “boards” is terrifying and immediately disagreeable. But don’t dismay when it comes to social media’s newest member: Pinterest.

Pinterest is like social media scrapbooking. It lets you grab images from all over the web and “pin” them onto boards that you’ve categorized. You can then comment, like or repin what others are sharing.

Currently, Pinterest is hot for weddings, hair styles, shortcut recipes and fashion. But you don’t have to be a 20 something fashionista to pin. You can really find any niche you’re looking for on Pinterest. Here’s a list of some boards to follow for dental pins:

  • Operation Smile is on Pinterest. My favorite is the before & after smile board!
  • Smile Train has a similar thing going.
  • Here’s a board on dental hygiene with plenty of ideas for your peds clinic.
  • And then there are the toothy boards that are just al little creepy!

    I love Pinterest for personal use–it’s really fun and it’s easy to spend a lot of time on there! But I don’t put much dental stuff on there since not much of what we do is artistically/visually appealing in the same way a hot outfit or a delicious dessert might be:)

    I do pin my blog posts there, which happen to be dental, on a separate board, in case anyone is interested in reading them, though.

    Hi There, I graduated from Pitt dental in 2001 and last year I started an online company specializing in dental related gift items with original artwork and humor. I’m new to Pinterest so I have my favorite products from my site pinned on a dental board
    thank you,

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it
