 Graphic Dentistry:  The intersection of Comics and Dentistry



Comics are powerful combinations of words and images that register human experience: emotions, feelings and actions. Graphic Medicine is the study of comics in the service of healthcare delivery and education. This workshop will explore how Graphic Dentistry can be used to advance dental safety for practitioners and patients. Attendees will create their own original comics depicting dental dilemmas and safety strategies. This session will give infection preventionists a unique and high impact educational tool.

After attending this program, participants should be able to:

  • Define “graphic dentistry”
  • Describe three ways in which comics convey lived experience and capture universal developmental themes that are important to the practice of dentistry;
  • Use some of the basic “language of comics,” symbols which convey actions and emotions
  • Emphasize how patients and professionals may use comics for dental education—particularly around safety and infection control.
