Introduction:  'I learnt about Dentistry from that'

Abstract: The concept of an open reporting culture in dentistry was first discussed in Dental Update by Captain Steve Hawkins in a publication in November 20171 and followed up in an editorial2 in January of this year. In that, readers were invited to give their views on whether they would support a one-page feature in Dental Update in which readers would share near misses in which a disaster affecting a tooth/teeth and patient was narrowly avoided or, when something went wrong, nearly went wrong, or equally valuably, when something went very right.
