Dental teams have been involved with child protection for more than 40 years. In this article, we summarise their involvement in the detection of the various types of child abuse and discuss the ‘gap’ between the number of dental professionals who suspect child abuse or neglect and those who ask for advice on how to obtain help in such cases.
