20 Dentists to Follow on Instagram

20 Dentists to Follow on Instagram who updates detailed, well researched posts- Includes General Dentists, Specialists, Residents and Students

One of the best advantages of social media platforms is how learning can be done through a multitude of ways - If you are a visual learner, you can watch Youtube videos.

If you like bite-sized information, Dental Instagram and TikTok profiles will help.

I want to highlight a few dental Instagram profiles below, which I follow for the detailed, well-researched dental posts they update.
