BBC seeks bizarre dental tales

BBC television is looking for the most bizarre, unusual and extraordinary dental cases to feature in a medical documentary series, Bizarre ER.

The production team is looking to speak to dental professionals willing to share the most remarkable accidents, injuries or other cases they may have encountered in recent years, with the proviso that the patients concerned made a substantial recovery afterwards.

They are specifically interested in:
• A story with a very unusual wound, fracture, other injury or symptoms
• A bizarre accident – either in terms of its impact on the body, or the details of the accident itself
• Something that calls for a curious form of treatment or operation
• Or a fairly commonplace injury that was sustained in improbable or amusing circumstances

The series is fundamentally respectful of both the medical profession and those patients who consent to take part.

The programme-makers abide by strict BBC guidelines that ensure that everyone is portrayed fairly.

As Maverick Television is an experienced producer of several medical series and undertake not to undermine or discredit the strict rules of patient confidentiality, they are, at this stage only asking dental nurses to contact them with examples and not with the patients’ details.

If there’s anything you think might be appropriate for the programme, please contact Samantha Williams at Maverick’s London offices on +44 20 7874 6675 or email [email protected].
