Personal Information

The only personal information we collect is what you voluntarily offer during signup. We also store certain information we receive related to your use of the site, such as your IP address. The personal information we do have will never be made available to others, with the following exceptions: (1) legal orders, such as subpoenas (2) repeated serious violation of site rules (3) appropriate requests from compliance, licensing, legal, or other similar departments who need to contact users quickly and directly.

Also, moderators have access to some information to enable duplicate account checking. They also may have information that they have access to as part of the moderation of the site, such as abuse reports, appeals, and other information sent by users to the moderators. Moderators are not allowed to share any of that information with non-moderators or anyone not on this site, unless one of the above exceptions apply.


We store a few cookies on your computer, related to logging in and to gathering statistics on unique visitors.


Users who have signed up for Infodontics may occasionally receive administrative emails.


We collect web analytics information about our users in order to help us run the site more effectively. For example, web analytics allows us to see trending information about page views per day, or even things like what percentage of users are using each browser. Our web analytics are provided by third parties, and their privacy policies apply to the information they collect.

Third Party Advertising

Infodontics is supported by advertising. We use various third party ad services to provide the ads that you see on the site. We cannot control what (if any) information is stored by these services. We do not provide any personal information about our users to these services.

Our ad networks use cookies to serve ads on this site. For example, Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.

Licensing Policies

Except where otherwise specified, the text on Infodontics is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License 3.0 (Unported) (CC-BY-SA).

Read the full legal code of the license.

Commercial Use Waiver

If you contribute to, or have contributed to, a wiki that uses a license that restricts the commercial use of your contribution (e.g., the CC-BY-NC license or the CC-BY-NC-ND license), you hereby waive such restriction with respect to Infodontic’s use of such contribution and any derivative works of such contribution.


As a contributor, you agree that being attributed in any of the following fashions satisfies the attribution requirements of the license applicable to your contribution to a wiki: a) attribution through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article or articles you contributed to, b) attribution through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website, or c) attribution through a list of all authors. Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.

Non-text files

Freely licensed or public domain images are strongly preferred on Infodontics.

Non-text media on Infodontics should not be assumed to be available under the same license as the text. Please view the media description page for details about the license of any specific media file.

If you are uploading files to Infodontics, you should cite the source of the file, attribute the authors, and note any copyright information, where applicable. Individual communities may elaborate upon and refine requirements for file uploads.


These licensing terms are not to be modified. If there is any inconsistency between these terms and any translation into other languages, the English language version takes precedence.

Creation Policy

Community creation policy 

Infodontics  welcomes pages on almost any dental topic, large or small, popular or obscure, modern or historical, creative or documentary. However, your page must contain no hate, no libel, no pornographic content, and no copyright infringement.

You must agree:

Free content 

Text on Infodontics pages is available under a free content license, meaning the information you put on the wiki can be copied and reused by anyone. This is very important to our goal of increasing the amount of free content in the world, but isn't always what creators are looking for when searching for a content host.

Although some fair use material may be included in our communities, Infodontics aims to be a repository of free content, so any wiki which would be primarily made up of fair use material rather than freely licensed material is not permitted. Examples include fan translations of copyrighted works, screenshots of television shows or games, or scans of comic book pages.

Public viewing 

All Infodotics communities are publicly viewable. Infodontics does not provide private communities and there is no option in the software to password-protect or otherwise prevent people from reading any of the pages on a community.

Infodontics communities are indexed by search engines, and contributions may appear prominently in certain search results.

Public editing 

Pages are about working together, and all Infodontics pages are open to the public to edit. There is no option to restrict editing to the founder or to a particular group.

These are community projects, not personal websites. They are not owned by their founders, nor does the founder's opinion carry more weight in disagreements than any other user's opinion. Consensus and cooperation should be the primary means for organizing a community.

No abuse 

Pages or entries which consist only of offensive material or personal attacks will be closed.

A user who is banned on other communities or who abuses the wiki creation tool may be blocked from creating new pages.

Users may not create pages with offensive or abusive titles or urls. We know it is not possible to block every possible abuse. Users who create pages/entries in bad faith will simply have their wiki deleted and their user account banned.

Please contact staff (mandilyn@infodontics.com) to report any abusive community names that we have missed, or if the filter mistakenly prevents you from using an innocent name.
