Research project

Hi all, I'm a currently a student dental hygiene/therapist and also a BD sufferer. In my second year of uni I have to undertake a research project, I have chose to do it on BD and the impact it has to sufferers oral health. Would anyone be willing to complete an anonymous questionnaire on this to aide my research? Please. I really want to highlight BD to the dental care professionals as they may be the first to see the symptoms

  • Sure, I would be happy to answer a questionaire concerning the effects of Behcet's on oral hygiene. I believe that Behcet's can cause many more problems than just the painful, horrible ulcers we all relate to. I'm willing to help if this could increase dentists awareness and understanding of this disease.

    My email,

  • Yes, thank u!

    I will get the emails out ASAP, I haven't sent any yet as I'm having a flare myself and trying to get through the bank holiday weekend with my 3 year old and BD as you all know is difficult 🙈

  • Hi that's ok, I have posted the link in the post itself now, but here it is too:

  • Hi everyone I have got authorisation to send my questionnaire out so here is the link...

    Thank you in advance

  • Done!

  • Happy to complete. Could you send a load of questionnaires to the Centres of excellence to see if they will be happy to distribute them on their clinic days? Patients usually have time there in between seeing different doctors in clinic. I am sure the more responses the better ( though more work for you to analyse!)

    good luck

  • I approached the centre of excellence unfortunately the hospitals procedure for things like this is not that straight forward so it would take months to be able to get the questionnaires into the hospitals :-(

  • Hi, I haven't been on here for a few days and am just catching up, I'd be willing to help. I'm grateful for you raising awareness of BD in the dental profession. X

  • Hi, if you are still needing volunteers to do this I'd be happy to contribute.
