New blog website is launched!

I am very pleased that we have been able to launch the new website for my blog ahead of schedule.  I hope that you like it.

Orthodontic blog

Readers will remember that earlier this year I explained that the old website was getting tired and clunky.  I was also having problems with the “budget” web servers, as the site was crashing whenever I posted.  This was simply because the site was being read so many times. As a result, I decided that I needed to make changes and I asked for donations to support my blog.  This response was fantastic. In fact, I had to stop the donation drive because there was a risk that I was going to make a profit!

I have spent these funds on new faster servers and having a new website professionally written.  This was done by a very helpful company, The Fresh,  who are based in Manchester, next to the Manchester United stadium (this did not influence my decision on who to commission!).

This new website will be much faster to load, clearer to navigate, read easily on phones and tablets and generally much better than the old one, which I wrote myself.

I have tested it very carefully and I think that we have spotted most of the glitches. However, there may be one or two that have slipped the net. If you spot anything could you just mention this in the comments section?  One issue may be the subscription pop up software may keep asking you to subscribe. If you have subscribed already for email reminders, you do not need to redo this. If this issue persists, we will fix it.

Finally, I hope that you like the new website and I will return to normal posting next week.

    Congratulations on your new website. ‘The Fresh’ have done you proud.
    Just an observation Kevin, but, “I am a professor of orthodontic(s)….” needs an ‘s’. Much more importantly, could you clarify just how we can subscribe/make a donation. Electronic bank transfer would be easiest for me.
    Yours aye,

      I endorse the idea of a donation/support button perhaps with a suggested annual amount. Your blog and now website is a wonderful resource for the entire dental profession. Thank you.

    For those who feel that unproven pseudoscientific assertions not exempt of commercial interest are plaguing orthodontic practice, we must thank you for your attempts to bring back our field to scientific thinking and credibility.
